Description

Distributed Ledger Technology, otherwise known as Blockchain has attracted much attention of late. Central banks are at the forefront of experimenting with this technology but there are numerous potential applications beyond wholesale finance. They include supply chains, maintenance of land records or any area that requires proving authenticity and traceability. Many of the initial implementations are unlikely to be consumer-facing, although we may still benefit from them. The presentation provides a few examples of ongoing experiments in a variety of sectors.
