Topic Abstract: Viewed as both an opportunity and a threat, blockchain is driving the re-invention of many of the world’s most fundamental business interactions. The ability to make the simple construct of a distributed ledger real has also opened the door to completely new ideas on how we exchange value, as well as understanding the ownership of an asset in the digital age. As a founding member of the open-source Linux Foundation Hyperledger project, and a driver of global blockchain collaboration and innovation, IBM is working to reimagine business networks across industries such as finance, healthcare, insurance, supply chains and IoT.
