This report looks at GDP (in US$, 2019 prices) which is the net additional value created by blockchain.
“Blockchain has the potential to cut costs, speed up transactions and promote greater financial inclusion by streamlining cross-border and remittance payments. These powerful innovations will transform payments infrastructure.”
“For healthcare organisations, blockchain can ensure patient safety is at the heart of the pharmaceutical supply chain. It has the potential to give patients confidence in the authenticity and origin of drugs.”
“As the education sector accelerates its move into digital learning, it is embracing new technology with greater urgency and freeing us all from time-consuming, inefficient, paper-based credentials systems, which are so easily violated.”
“If a dispute occurs, blockchain can help by automatically blocking payments and triggering alerts that automate dispute processes. With its tracking abilities, the technology can help quickly unwind disputes and exposures in a trusted way.”
"Blockchain could prevent loyalty programmes from falling out of use. With digital payments now the norm, consolidation of these programmes is inevitable, and blockchain is key in unlocking value, in a fair way, for all involved.”
