Deloitte and World Economic Forum Report on Blockchain Potential
Following a recent report on the potential of blockchain technology, the World Economic Forum has, in conjunction with Deloitte, released another report – “Opportunities & obstacles: Blockchain and the future of financial infrastructure”. The report draws on over 12 months of research, engaging 200+ industry leaders and subject matter experts through interviews and multi-stakeholder workshops.
Giancarlo Bruno, Senior Director for Head of Financial Services Industries at the World Economic Forum, said: “Throughout the last 50 years, the financial services industry has embraced new technologies that now seem commonplace but were once cutting edge, including ATMs, credit cards, and electronic trading. In the same way, blockchain technology is moving from the margins of the finance industry to the main stage, and will continue to help build innovative solutions across the industry, becoming ever more integrated into the identity of financial services.”
