Forecasting the future of blockchain
"The polarised arguments around blockchain’s value suggest there is no shared understanding of the value of decentralisation. Organisations express concern around the arbitrary power of governments as well as large organisations. However, do they understand the trade-offs and additional resources required to attain higher trust? Privacy is also a concern. Yet most of us share data daily in exchange for free access to the internet and social media platforms."

Blockchain 2020 – thoughts, comments and the future
"Blockchain 2020: though many will deny it, 2019 was a year of relatively small progress for blockchain in the enterprise. Yes, progress occurred. But it was not of an earth-shattering form.

As a mild antidote as well as precursor to 2020 Enterprise Times offers up a selection of statements made about blockchain for next year. Take them as you will…"

An Empty Chair…. #scm
"When I was a Gartner analyst in 2001, there were over 120 B2b platforms. Then we termed them trading exchanges. Today, two decades later, only 10% of these initial start-ups survive. With the evolution of VANs, and trading exchanges at the turn of the decade, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) became the workhorse of the industry to move data between companies. (EDI is an electronic interchange of business information using a standardized format; a process that allows one company to send information to another company electronically rather than with paper.) In an ideal state, trading partners work together to drive value in networks."

World Economic Forum to define blockchain for supply chain deployment
"Assembling over 100 of the more influential ports, shippers and supply chain companies to co-design an open-source toolkit to accelerate the deployment of blockchain technology in a coherent manner is no mean achievement. There are many competing interests. Perhaps it needed the ‘sponsorship’ from a body like the World Economic Forum to break down barriers."

Is Blockchain relevant for any Business Model?
"The problem we are solving here is at the core of all trade – trust. Blockchain’s key advantage is that the buyer and seller, the other parties or competitors that are involved can trust the validity of the distributed ledger without the need for any intermediary like a bank or broker or lawyer or government being involved. No reputation required. It eliminates the need for the duplication of effort that always happens amongst the parties involved, and reduces the need for those intermediaries. It changes the backbone of business. This is why the banks and financial institutions have been amongst the first to make big investments in to understanding and developing this new technology. Blockchain has the power to significantly disrupt their core business model as the key intermediary and the central overseer of trade. This is why blockchain developer skills are at a premium."

The blockchain begins finding its way in the enterprise
"In spite of the growing interest we have seen over the last 12-18 months, blockchain lacks some basic underlying system plumbing, the kind any platform needs to thrive in an enterprise setting. Granted, some companies and the open source community are recognizing this as an opportunity and trying to build it, but many challenges remain."

Walmart’s Blockchain Program May Transform the Way We Use Data
"A second pilot program involved mangos, which take a very long journey from farm to table. First, they’re shipped to a packing house, delivered to the U.S., then processed again and packaged for shipping and distribution by truck to thousands of Walmart (and Sam’s Club) stores. Yiannis remembers bringing a package of mangos to a team meeting and challenging his staff to tell him where it came from. “It took us six days, 18 hours and 26 minutes… Almost seven days… Ad we do better than most.” But after implementing a blockchain-based system, a trace back to source took just 2.2 seconds. “That’s food traceability at the speed of thought. As fast as you could think it, we could know it.”

We love the smell of Blockchain in the morning - by @dt
"Some people know what they are talking about, but when others say blockchain do the really just mean a secure, distributed database of some kind? There is both bad and good information on this, with bad and good definitions out there. For example, when I was researching this article I found a Fortune/Bloomberg piece from last December titled Blockchain Is Pumping New Life Into Old-School Companies Like IBM and Visa, that contains the sentence: “The blockchain can also hold many more documents and data than traditional database storage, allowing for more nuanced insights and analysis.” Now that’s rubbish on many levels, and dangerous too."

Blockchain Economics – the Reality. Can your application afford the transaction costs? - via @dt
"Worryingly, we see a lot of mooted applications in the press where it is clear there is not a hope in hell that Blockchains (in their current form), will be fast enough or cheap enough to work (see Dinis’s talk on IoT – linked to above – for a typical example). Somewhere between the hype, hope and heuristics is a major disconnect. In our view a lot of applications currently being suggested for blockhain at the moment won’t be able to cope with its operational and economic overheads."

Cryptocurrency and central banking - by @denispombriant
"So far, cryptocurrencies lack any macroeconomic structures for managing things like inflation and recession and on exchanges they behave much like stocks. As we’ve seen in many mergers and acquisitions company stock can be used in part or in lieu of cash to enable the transaction provided both sides agree on the value represented by the stocks. But as an everyday currency that one might use to purchase groceries or pay a utility bill, cryptocurrencies are still way behind the curve."

Blockchain: Reflections on a Webinar - by @lcecere
" Blockchain is an immutable ledger. On the webinar, Juan Ruiz from IBM used an analogy that I loved. He shared the story from his boss. She describes immutable as completing a crossword puzzle with an ink pen versus a pencil. When you use a pencil on a crossword puzzle, you can erase the entries. However, in the use of the pen, the first entries stay and are then crossed through. This is a great analogy to understand “immutable” as it pertains to blockchain."

Similarly, the merits of interworking DLT/blochchains could do with more depth."
