FRT Episode 26: Blockchain Development and Use Cases

Mercina Tillemann, Chief Operating Officer at the Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC) shares her insights on the application of distributed ledger technology, describing some fascinating use cases from across various industrial sectors and governmental functions.

These real-life use cases include property registries and other governmental records, digital identity, verifying supply chain integrity (including for ethical factors), and facilitating trading within localized networks.

Mercina also discusses the market and regulatory landscape for the technology, noting the growing maturity and familiarity as more pilot projects are completed. Nevertheless, further education efforts are needed across market participants and officials, and Mercina identifies the quite unique characteristic of a technology that has attracted enormous public attention, while offering what are essentially back-end solutions.
