The Innovation Dilemma of Distributed Ledger Technology
File Type: Document
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/the-innovation-dilemma-of-distributed-ledger-technology/
Feb 17, 2022 - The value of blockchain innovation comes from outward-looking strategies that benefit from broad collaboration across an ecosystem, especially around standards. But the legacy systems and processes of the automotive industry tend to favor incremental change over bold transformation. Without reliable estimates of eventual returns, many automakers have hesitated to invest in open experimentation. This new paper provides a framework for understanding the potential of distributed ledger technologies in mobility and transportation. It presents two dozen of most important blockchain use cases for automotive in three categories—enterprise operatio...

https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/declaration-of-interdependence/
Jan 16, 2018 - This manifesto for change calls for a new social contract, one that redefines the relationship between individuals in society and the institutions they have created to self-govern. It looks at the four drivers of this change—the Fourth Industrial Revolution, globalization of ideas and the economy, climate change, and demographic shifts due to war, drought, and oppression. It identifies such global disruptions as structural unemployment and inequality; failing education, healthcare, and research and development; human rights violations; and a biosphere in crisis. It identifies the four core change makers—the private sector, the state, civi...

Jun 19, 2020 - In this case study, the founder and CEO of a blockchain start-up explains his company’s vision for the future of the energy industry, changing how exploration and production companies raise capital and how investors and consumers participate in energy markets. The solution consists of a Hyperledger Fabric blockchain explorer, decentralized cloud storage, and an Ethereum-based platform that supports two ERC-20 tokens—one a security token and the other a utility token—plus an idea for powering bitcoin mining rigs that could provide an upstream source of revenue for oil and gas operators. It’s the kind of fresh thinking that this industr...
