There doesn’t seem to be a day that goes by without someone talking about Blockchain, I’ve read countless articles, read a plenty of whitepapers produced from the likes of consulting firms, banks and technology solution providers.
I believe there are compelling use cases for Blockchain technology in financial services. That being said though, only time will tell and I have got my own thinking cap on here as to how to best utilize this technology.
I have my own opinions on Bitcoin and the fact that cryptocurrencies which use de-centralized controls are seen as the next big challenger to centralized electronic money and banking systems remains to be seen.
Nevertheless, I believe in knowledge sharing and over the past year and half some key industry players have published some very useful articles on the subject.
