Decentralized Resource Governance
File Type: Document
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/decentralized-resource-governance/
Jun 24, 2022 - This research brief summarizes the findings of a substantial research project funded by Input Output (IO) and focused on discovering new approaches to the governance of resources in blockchain ecosystems. The team was substantial, with two dozen researchers from IO, the Boston Consulting Group, and the Blockchain Research Institute. The process was iterative, with write-ups, peer reviews, and discussions of research results and feedback. Based on its findings, the research team proposed a new form of stewardship, called the decentralized resource governance (DRG) model. It is a means of governing initiatives to deploy resources, shap...

Blockchain Interoperability
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-interoperability/
Aug 21, 2020 - This project explains the key interoperability challenges that the blockchain pioneers need to solve. It covers the business and technical foundations of interoperability, namely decisions about user identity (keys and signatures), security of assets (cryptography), notaries of off-chain events (oracles and Byzantine committees), block relays (sidechains and pegs) between a local chain and a foreign one, gateways of communication, and network architecture. It surveys the five major interoperability projects, and it explores the use case of cross-border trade, defining the problem it solves as well as the advantages of the solution it provides...
Blockchain Revolution in the Oil and Gas Industry
File Type: Document
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-revolution-in-the-oil-and-gas-industry/
May 31, 2022 - This project shows how blockchain innovators in oil and gas are reimagining the energy industry from exploration and discovery to asset retirement and environmental renewal. It highlights use cases for tracking carbon and trading carbon credits (e.g., Guild One’s Energy Blockchain Exchange), coordinating contracts among multiple partners, assuring land and royalty rights, digitizing oil and gas post-trade settlement (e.g, Quorum-based Vakt for commodity trading post processing), streamlining and automating compliance, monitoring operations, maintenance, and inspections, all the while transitioning to a sustainable future.
