Blockchain Goes Global

It could be argued that blockchain is boring and useless. It is just one of many databases and is not yet very good or very fast or very scalable, however what it does, it does very well. Where authenticity is critical, blockchain will become transformative, which gets you to things like global clearance, the global supply chain, health care, and aerospace. How will we get there? We think it will take an open model to build out the protocols and will require ‘coopetition’ between and across industries, and around the world.
