Why Blockchain?

Because reliable information can be very expensive,

and blockchain reduces the cost of reliable information

Q:  How does blockchain ensure information is reliable?

A:  A blockchain will only store information that select business network participants have agreed is true. When information is submitted that does not meet the pre-configurable policy, it is rejected by network participants.

Q:  If an organization has multiple sources of verifiably true information, how does a blockchain determine which is the most recent version of that truth?

A:  Data silos within organizations often present competing versions of truth. When the true information is time-stamped and serialized, it becomes part of a cryptographically secure chain-of-blocks and forms the ledger which is automatically shared with select participants. The most recent version of true is now the only version available to those network participants.

Q:  I don’t see an immediate need for a blockchain in my current operations. What is the best way to future-proof my business?

A:  The versatility of blockchain and the rapid growth across all industries means business operators should prepare for the eventulality that one of its partner organizations – a supplier, distributor, customer, institution, regulator – will adapt new processes that integrate blockchain technology into their growth plan. Business operators can have their operations periodically assessed and follow industry peers for any evidence of technolgy advancements.
