Blockchain is a booming technology that uses a transparent, secure and decentralised ledger, opening up a wealth opportunities for all business actors in a legal framework that is, as yet, still under construction.
Blockchain, developed for the first time in 2008 (Bitcoin), is still considered by some as the next industrial revolution. Business applications based on this technology are still being explored. Although still (maybe) far from having revealed its full potential, blockchain is already a source of innovation and change for a number of economic players in a wide variety of fields.
However, a transition to blockchain comes with a certain number of structuring issues for companies, in particular as to whether they should integrate blockchain to their business model. It also comes with a number of pending questions, such as identifying appropriate activities through to how to integrate this technology. Such decisions must be made in a fledgling and moving regulatory environment that also tends to different from one country to the next.
