Description

Blockchain is an open, distributed ledger that can record peer-to-peer transactions efficiently and in a verifiable way. It has the ability to disrupt industries and transform business models since all intermediaries and stakeholders can now interact with little friction and at a fraction of the current transaction costs. Using blockchain technology, firms can undergo new applications and processes by pursuing transparency and control, low bureaucracy, trustless relationships, high standards of responsibility and sustainability. As a result, business and organizations can successfully implement blockchain to grant transparency to consumers and end-users, remove challenges linked to pollution, frauds, human rights, abuse, and other inefficiency, as well as guarantee traceability of goods and services by univocally identifying the provenance inputs' quantity and quality along with their treatment and origin.

This book seeks to create a clear understanding of blockchain's applications such that business leaders can see and evaluate its real advantages. Blockchain is then analyzed not from the typical perspective of financial tools using cryptocurrencies and bitcoins, but from the perspective of the business advantages for business and organizations. Specifically, the book highlights the advantages of blockchain across different segments and industries, by analyzing specific aspects like procurement, manufacturing, contracts, inventory, logistics, operations, sustainability, technology, and innovation. Therefore, the book aims at revealing the true advantages that blockchain entails for firms by creating transparent and digital transactions, resolving conflicts and exceptions, and providing incentive-based mechanisms and smart contracts.
