This IDC study discusses the worldwide blockchain top 10 predictions for 2020.
"Blockchain has been attracting all types of attention in the past few years," said James Wester, research director, Worldwide Blockchain Strategies at IDC, and lead author of this document. "Not all of that attention has been positive or focused on the areas where blockchain has already been showing great promise. But the technologies that are bundled under the label blockchain — including distributed ledgers, digital assets, and even cryptocurrencies — represent a very disruptive trend that will have a significant impact on industries as varied as healthcare, financial services, supply chain, and more."
