Basingstoke, UK – 11th September 2018: A new Juniper Research survey has found that 65% of responding enterprises with over 10,000 employees are considering or actively engaged in blockchain deployment. This marks a significant rise from last year, when the corresponding figure was 54%.
Indeed, according to the Blockchain Enterprise Survey: Deployments, Benefits & Attitudes (Second Edition), nearly a quarter of companies considering deploying blockchain had moved beyond proof of concept into trials and commercial rollouts, with dramatic diversification in use cases over the past year. Only 15% of proposed deployments were now related to payments (compared with 34% last year), with significant interest in opportunities across diverse fields including logistics, authentication and smart contracts.
The findings tally with those from Juniper’s attendant Future of Blockchain research, which identifies savings and cost reductions across a range of verticals in areas such as compliance and fraud reduction, including more than $100 billion by 2030 in food exports.
