The most important themes affecting the telecoms, media and technology sector, such as new threats and emerging opportunities
In our first report, we covered eight of the most exciting blockchain applications for telcos. In this report, we look at what else can it be used for. It explores 36 potential blockchain use cases for telecoms, identifying the current pain point, how blockchain could help, the business driver for telcos, and real world examples.
Despite a lot of hype over the last few years, there has been little progress on blockchain in the telecoms industry beyond proofs of concept. This report identifies why blockchain hasn’t gained more traction and provides a framework to assess the potential value of blockchain use cases in telecoms. It then looks in depth at the structure and business model for eight promising use cases.
