Distributed ledger technology (DLT) is set to boost global trade by USD 1 trillion within the next 10 years (WEF, 2018), and spending on DLT solutions will rise to nearly USD 15.9 billion by 2023 (IDC, 2019). This indicates that companies and public institutions have come to realise the importance and positive impact that this technology can have on their business operations. Blockchain technology, as a subset of DLT, allows for the recordation of every event or transaction within a system, which data can be subsequently shared among all participants in a secure, practically immutable, and irrevocable way, thus alleviating the negative effects of information asymmetry, single point of failures, and fragmentation.
The evolution of blockchain technology in both the public and private sectors has come a long way. From providing mere components that might support and enhance traditional systems and processes, such as cryptography, distributed computing and peer-to-peer networking, various stakeholders are now looking further in the attempt for holistic blockchain-based implementations. This included the integration with complementary technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI). Companies that ignore the potential that this technology has to offer risk becoming uncompetitive. Blockchain-based solutions have already been implemented to address various challenges with traditional systems. These include land registry, public procurement, supply chain management, customer loyalty programs and customer identity management, amongst others.
