Introduction to Stablecoins
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/introduction-to-stablecoins/
Jan 21, 2021 - This research project looks at stablecoins, a new category of digital assets with stable prices in decentralized financial systems. It achieves three goals. First, it examines different ways to stabilize the price of a cryptocurrency. Some are backed by assets with stable value such as US dollars or gold, others are stabilized by algorithms, and some combine those two approaches. Second, it surveys the landscape of stablecoins and analyze the top ten stablecoins by market capitalization. Finally, it suggests ways to use stablecoins for protecting the value of a cryptoasset portfolio.
Non-Fungible Tokens

https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/non-fungible-tokens/
Aug 30, 2019 - This project explores a type of cryptoasset, the non-fungible token (NFT), or what we call the crypto collectible. It explains the concept of the NFT and illustrates how it works through the best-known NFTs, CryptoKitties, a phenomenon of an asset within the Ethereum-based CryptoKitties game. It revealed how businesses might create and use digitally unique and scarce assets beyond cryptocurrencies in their business models. The project also covers the online gaming market—both packaged software and downloadable content—and describes how companies might tokenize their intangible and physical assets.
Distributed and Collaborative Marketplaces
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/distributed-and-collaborative-marketplaces/
Jan 22, 2018 - Blockchain technology could enable cooperative models for organizing capital and capability, exchanging value, and managing risk peer to peer. This research project explores distributed marketplaces for insurance and financial assets, where peers amass large pools of liquidity on the blockchain, smart contracts pay liabilities, and artificial intelligence calculates actuarial risk.
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.
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...
Blockchain Revolution in Education and Lifelong Learning
File Type: Document
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-revolution-in-education-and-lifelong-learning/
Apr 22, 2019 - Updated in collaboration with the IBM Institute for Business Value, this project explores how blockchain is transforming education with an emphasis on lifelong learning and the reskilling of the workforce. It covers not just traditional educational institutions but also corporate training and development, where innovators are using blockchain to establish student identity, protect privacy, finance coursework, measure progress, and record badges of achievement and skills mastery. The implementation of microcredentialing capabilities, pay-as-you-learn funding models, and massively open online courses, plus the co-creation of open educational re...
