Governance Of Blockchain Systems
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/governance-of-blockchain-systems/
Jun 27, 2018 - Decentralization, hashing functions, public key cryptography, and smart contracts are advantageous design features of blockchain systems. These require the coordination of multiple and diverse actors with differing incentives—cryptoeconomics—to solve any problems that arise. This research examines the impact of governance on these systems. Specifically, it explores governance needs at three levels of the blockchain stack: the Internet layer, the blockchain layer, and the application layer, including the deployment of decentralized applications (Dapps). De Filippi and McMullen explain the difference between governance by the infrastructure...
Blockchain and the Chief Strategy Officer
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-and-the-chief-strategy-officer/
Jul 19, 2019 - This research looks at blockchain technology’s impact on enterprise strategy and the role of the chief strategy officer. It discusses new elements of strategic design and delivery—shared ledgers, smart contracts, and tokenized assets—and develops the concept of strategic liquidity, the degree to which an enterprise can maneuver in a competitive environment and dynamically reallocate resources and access capabilities. It frames implementation challenges as areas for further research and opportunities to participate in blockchain standards development. Finally, it suggests ways for companies to cultivate blockchain knowledge and expertise...
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...
Non-Fungible Tokens
File Type: Document, Infographic
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.
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...
