Much like the internet in its early days, Blockchain may seem difficult to understand and forecast, but it could become pervasive in the exchange of payments, goods, services, information, contracts, and interactions among organizations and individuals. Beginning with a brief history of Blockchain technology and a short technical overview, we will explore the significance of Blockchain in the marketplace, strengths and weaknesses, current and emerging applications, as well as the possibilities for the expanded use of Blockchain in business, government, and not-for-profit organizations.
Anna Sidorova, Associate Professor of Information Systems, University of North Texas
