In part 1 of the blockchain mini-series, we discussed the pitfalls of a pilot-driven approach to blockchain – including the massive hype-cycle.
A recent Accenture project surveyed 800 large companies about which digital technologies are likely to have the greatest impact in the coming years. About 84% of respondents anticipate using blockchain within five years, and 47% are using it now.
Sometimes, the hype is not bad if it drives new technology adoption forward. Again, I worry that despite the flurry of activity today, too few real projects are being created to truly grow adoption (and impact) in the market.
Media hype sounds good on paper. What about real life?
