First White Paper Released!
Towards Blockchain 3.0 Interoperability: Business and Technical Considerations
The Executive Advisory Board members for the BCoE selected the topic for this white paper. Members posed the research question: “How can enterprises approach interoperability when the technology is immature and rapidly changing?” (the so-called ‘Blockchain 3.0’ era). Many blockchain applications have been developed, both public and private, since the Bitcoin application was developed in 2009. As enterprises explore blockchain solutions, they are increasingly concerned about the proliferation of blockchains, how blockchain applications will connect with each other and with legacy systems, and the fear of getting locked into solutions too early.
