This IDC Perspective highlights six patterns of blockchain adoption that are unique to the European region and provide guidance for technology buyers that are considering investing in this technology.
"Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies have a global nature, as their main objective is to facilitate the exchange of digital and physical assets among third parties. Nonetheless, the complexity of the European region generates a stronger need for cross-border and cross-company collaboration. The collaborative approach, data privacy rules, and the vibrant start-up ecosystems are poised to shape the blockchain space in Europe and make it much different from other regions," said Giorgio Nebuloni, research director, IDC European Infrastructure.
