From promise to reality.
Deloitte’s annual Global Blockchain Survey reveals a compelling evolution of blockchain from an experimental, disruptive technology to a true strategic priority for organizations.
The survey polled a sample of nearly 1,500 senior executives in 14 countries and suggests that initial doubts about blockchain’s usefulness are fading as business leaders now see it as integral to organizational innovation. As a result, they are putting money and resources behind the technology in more meaningful and tangible ways. As with any business solution, there are still real-world challenges to overcome. Still, in 2020, both bold and modest in-production proof points across a wide variety of implementation scenarios demonstrate that blockchain technology works – and can work – for many different organizations, businesses, and industries.
Amongst the key findings in this year’s survey are:
- Cybersecurity presents a persistent but manageable challenge
- Global digital identity has yet to fully realize its potential
- Regulatory requirements may complicate adoption
