Abstract

This IDC Presentation discusses the use of blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) in various industry verticals. It includes vertical-specific proof of concept and "in production" use cases in Canada and around the world.

The document provides a brief introduction to the core features behind blockchain/DLT, such as distributed ledgers, smart contracts, and tokens; an analysis of enterprise applicability; and an outline of some of the challenges in the wider blockchain/DLT marketplace.

The document covers use cases in verticals such as banking, insurance, logistics, and utilities. It also includes a top-line forecast for Canadian spending on blockchain/DLT, as well as guidance for end users and technology vendors.

This document is the first in a series from IDC Canada's vertical markets team covering the growth and development of the Canadian blockchain/DLT marketplace.
