The truth about blockchain

The exciting possibilities surrounding blochain are unavoidable — well, or at least the hype is. But Professors Marco Iansiti and Karim Lakhani argue that truly transformative adoption of blockchain is still years away. The reason lies in the type of technology blockchain is, that is, foundational rather than disruptive. Because cheaper technology will not drive implementation, companies will need other incentives to adopt blockchain. This article from Harvard Business Review provides a framework for how executives can begin thinking about implementing blockchain within their own organizations.
