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."

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."

Xage introduces fingerprinting to protect industrial IoT devices
"You may be wondering where the blockchain comes into this, but imagine a honey pot of these fingerprints were stored in a conventional database. If that database were compromised, it would mean hackers could have access to a company’s entire store of fingerprints, completely neutering that idea. That’s where the blockchain comes in."

RAND’s blockchain challenges and opportunities
"No doubt because the BSI commissioned the Report, its focus is on standards. There is relatively little examination of the processing implications (including the speed and size of DLT/blockchains). The description: “the distributed nature of DLT/blockchain systems and the need for increased computing power could involve high energy consumption and associated costs” does not explore the issues in depth. Similarly, the merits of interworking DLT/blochchains could do with more depth."

Why The Blockchain, Not Bitcoin, Is What's Fascinating Builders
"The blockchain has not fully come into its full potential by any means. Most projects seem to be in early stages of beta testing and trials. Yet it's clear there are advances on an almost daily basis. It will be interesting to see the outcomes of the Open Ledger project and what the future holds for the blockchain, especially in newer applications like voting and healthcare. While the technology will progress quickly, it's not as clear that our political systems and everyday users will be able to keep up."
