Redefining Business for Tomorrow with Blockchain
After the 2008 crash of crypto, naysayers began to downplay the importance of blockchain technology. They argued that the technology is over-hyped and little is actually happening.
Based on close to million of research conducted by The Blockchain Research Institute, Don Tapscott debunks this storyline, arguing that we’re entering into a second era where new technologies are infusing into everything, including every business process. Innovations such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, drones, new materials, and even technology in our bodies are enabling entirely new types of enterprises. Tapscott explains how blockchain is foundational to these innovations.
Using examples from around the world, he outlines how 10 industries are being changed today. He also addresses many of the challenges being faced by enterprise innovators, from technology to the need to build industry ecosystems to bring about transformative change. He discusses new business models that are already disrupting many industries and starting to change the deep architecture and structure corporations as well as the foundation for wealth creation and prosperity in our societies.
Don Tapscott is the author of 16 widely read books about the digital age, most recently Blockchain Revolution, written with his son Alex. In 1994, Tapscott introduced The Digital Economy and since has been the most prescient theorist of the ever-accelerating changes around us.
