This IDC Survey Spotlight analyzes the results of a survey of around 800 technology influencers and decision makers in the Middle East. The respondents were employed in organizations that either have already implemented a blockchain use case or plan to do so in the next two years.
“The adoption of blockchain in the Middle East is the most advanced in the United Arab Emirates, which aims to become a paperless economy by 2021 via its ambitious Emirates Blockchain Strategy 2021. Continuous investments from within the public sector — particularly from banks — have created enough public-private-partnership (PPP) opportunities to drive blockchain adoption and the overall market ecosystem in the region." — Software and Cloud Program Manager Manish Ranjan, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa
