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...
Toward a Universal Digital Wallet

https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/toward-a-universal-digital-wallet/
Nov 13, 2020 - For cryptocurrencies and other blockchain technologies to scale in adoption as the Internet did, people need more human-friendly ways to use them. We believe that the digital wallet is one such way. Digital wallets are pieces of software that hold digital things of value for us, such as money, ID cards, and documents such as receipts. They enable us to make payments, prove our identities, record and verify our actions and transactions, and aggregrate and manage our cryptoassets such bitcoin, ether, or derivatives of cryptocurrencies. Eventually, we expect them to capture and protect our Internet browsing, online shopping, and other streams of...
The Convergence of Big Data and Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/the-convergence-of-big-data-and-blockchain/
Dec 15, 2017 - This project explores how blockchain will change business models dependent on free big data. Distributed ledger technology will enable instant payment networks, loyalty schemes, aggregated metadata, multi-jurisdiction processes, and transactions within multinationals, potentially without liability for customer data and in compliance with EU General Data Protection Regulation.
Self-Sovereign Identity
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/self-sovereign-identity/
Mar 10, 2022 - In this research, one of the leading experts and thought leaders in the digital identity space brings his latest thinking to enterprise innovators. He explains the value of the relationship view of identity, the nature of authentic digital relationships, the trust bases of identity systems, and the architecture of the identity metasystem, including decentralized identifier communication and the self-sovereign Internet. He then explores how to operationalize digital relationships and the potential of generative identities (e.g., verifiable credentials) and credential exchange. He concludes with a deep dive into self-sovereign identities in pro...
Blockchain Transformation In Telecommunications
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-transformation-in-telecommunications/
Sep 22, 2021 - Led by a telco industry veteran, this project showcases the big advances made in overcoming the implementation challenges of blockchain—namely, scalability, privacy, industry adoption, and enterprise readiness. It features a case study on roaming fraud and a timeline of telco blockchain demos like a cross-carrier payment system, intercarrier settlements, and subscription processing. The author applies a framework for use case analysis to data sharing, self-sovereign identity, certificate authorities, border gateway protocols, and service provisioning. Telcos are on the move, and this research captures initiatives underway.
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...
