The organization entered the market earlier this year supported by a veteran management team.

According to studies, the global blockchain industry is expected to exceed $2 trillion within the upcoming decade, a startling pace of growth.

After an unpredictable 2017 and a bear market in 2018, the blockchain industry appears to be refocusing itself on providing new meaningful services and advancements.

Tech business leaders believe in blockchain: KPMG study

According to a study carried out by “Big Four” auditing and financial services company KPMG, business leaders in the tech space have great expectations for the use of blockchain technology.

The study was carried out by the well known financial services company’s US Blockchain Program Lead, Tegan Keele.  One of the main take-aways from the report is that technology executives hold the expectation that blockchain adoption will lead to improved business efficiency.

Twenty three percent of those surveyed believe that efficiency in terms of business processes can be improved through the implementation and application of blockchain technology.

Other highlights in terms of technology executives expectations as to the top benefits of blockchain adoption include product/service differentiation (12%), cost reductions (9%) an new business insights from incremental data (9%).

With this year being witness to new major blockchain investments, enterprises appear more ready to implement these products, leveraging blockchain to gain an edge in a number of industries.

If recent trends are to be believed, this upcoming year may prove to be transformative.
