Large-Scale Blockchain Initiatives
More and more financial infrastructures are becoming blockchain-based. Organisations are doing so because they don’t want to lose out on global money movement.
Distributed ledger technology for trade finance and blockchain-enabled track-and-trace platforms have also become parts of many organizations.
In order to make blockchain a less complex affair, and remove regulatory bottlenecks, big organizations are also joining consortia. Right from profit-sharing to decision making, broad consensus has emerged on how to run consortia.
“Our survey confirms what we see in the marketplace — a proliferation of digital assets used as a means of exchange, a store of value, digital representations of specific assets, or equity in a company,” said Rob Massey, Partner, Global and US Tax Leader for Blockchain and Digital Assets, Deloitte Tax LLP.
