File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/new-directions-for-government-in-the-second-era-of-the-digital-age/
Feb 09, 2021 - This research project surveys what federal governments can do to exploit the next era of technology across their operations, within their economies and society, and with their allies and global partners. It focuses on the threats and opportunities facing the United States—including China’s increasing dominance in global supply chains and strategic innovation. It also speaks to challenges the new administration faces, and recommends five areas for immediate action: securing digital systems, citizen identities, and personal data; embracing cryptocurrencies and launching a digital dollar; transforming government services and culture; engagin...
Blockchain Identity Services
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-identity-services/
Jul 31, 2019 - This project examines how blockchain supports user centric identity systems, through such technological primitives as public key cryptography, hashing functions, zero-knowledge proofs, and homomorphic encryption. Its authors set nine benchmarks—technical specifications, governance, security, privacy, recovery and revocation, user experience, data controls, and degrees of decentralization and self-sovereignty—by which prospective users and ecosystem partners might assess different identity services and compare them to each other and the status quo. The purpose is to help users map their goals to the technical features necessary for achievi...

https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/building-a-framework-for-blockchain-adoption-what-ceos-should-know/
Oct 26, 2017 - This work helps CEOs to develop strategy around implementing and commercializing this new disruptive technology. CEOs must pick the right change agents to identify the problems to be solved with the technology so that the company picks the right pilot project. CEOs also need a strategy for communicating about that pilot with multiple stakeholders, learning from it whether it succeeds or not, and socializing lessons so that the company continues to experiment with the new technology.
Standardized and Decentralized
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/standardized-and-decentralized-rethinking-the-blockchain-stack/
Feb 28, 2018 - This project looks at the three layers of the blockchain stack—protocol, consensus, and economic—from logical and technical points of view; and it distinguishes between two types of standardization, semantic and technological. It should help executives and investors to understand the implementation challenges—such as scalability, energy consumption, and governance of each layer—and the problems that the blockchain community is attempting to solve with each innovation.
Distributed Connectivity
File Type: Document, Infographic, Video
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/distributed-connectivity/
Dec 27, 2017 - This research explores breadth of blockchain’s impact on the telecommunications industry. It presents a framework for evaluating use cases, actionable ideas for blockchain implementation, the risks and limitations of blockchain technology, and a path forward for telecom managers.
Cryptoeconomics
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/cryptoeconomics/
Jan 13, 2020 - This project is an executive’s guide to the emerging field of cryptoeconomics, the study of individual and collective choices in blockchain-based environments. These environments are more difficult to change than other software ecosystems, and so their creators must design them very thoughtfully. The authors provide a framework for economic design and walk through the phases of the design process. Through the case studies of Nestlé OpenSC, AXA fizzy, and the Synaptic Health Alliance, they analyze the challenges that stakeholders face in governing blockchain projects, and they explain why many projects fail to achieve their goals. It is a m...
