Description

Blockchain is a form of distributed ledger technology (DLT) that connects different parties over the internet to provide a secure and trustworthy record of their transactions (both financial and non-financial), without giving control to a third party.

On blockchains, you can prove where information has come from and gone to, which means it has the potential to open up new economic activity in areas such as financial services, regtech, supply chains and government registries.

This report selects three use cases to examine how blockchain systems can support new markets and business models. These include: agricultural supply chains, government registries and remittance payments.
