The Future of Blockchain: An Expert View

Blockchain technology, though sometimes dismissed as over hyped, is in fact well positioned to be exceptionally influential in IT infrastructure in the years ahead. The big questions are: where is blockchain headed and – perhaps even more important – how can businesses make use of it? To provide guidance, I spoke with Jerry Cuomo, IBM Fellow and VP, Blockchain Technologies. The topics we covered:

1) There may be confusion among people between cybercurrencies like bitcoin and the distributed ledger technology of blockchain; they are completely separate, correct?

2) How can a business actually use blockchain? I’ve heard that business can simply write an app and access blockchain. How would this work?

3) The future: clearly, blockchain will clearly disrupt a variety of systems. What changes do you see in the near term future?
