Blockchain Evening: Accelerating Global Enterprise Blockchain Adoption
Presented by Chainstack. Partnered With SGInnovate
The year 2017 was the year of experimentation as enterprises realized both the benefits and challenges of blockchain. 2018 will be a crucial stage for enterprises as they make a huge leap from proof-of-concept projects to full blockchain deployments.
According to IDC, blockchain spending will be led by the financial sector ($754 million in 2018), driven largely by rapid adoption in the banking industry. The distribution and services sector ($510 million in 2018) will see strong investments from the retail and professional services industries while the manufacturing and resources sector ($448 million in 2018) will be driven by the discrete and process manufacturing industries.
Today’s decentralized applications are built by a tiny group of blockchain savvy early adopters, rather than mainstream developers. Steep learning curve and effort involved in the process has delayed wide adoption, which is blocking the major wave of blockchain applications. To attract large numbers of developers, building a blockchain-enabled application should be as simple as creating a modern web service.

SGC Business Magazine published an editorial contribution by Steve Leonard on the startup landscape in Singapore. Steve highlighted that while Singapore is helping drive some of ASEAN’s booming digital economy, most startups in Singapore are building businesses around consumer-facing technology. He emphasised the importance for Singapore to create startups that pursue ‘deep tech’ products and how SGInnovate was formed to tackle the challenges faced by these startups such as the lack of investment, the scarcity of talent and the long gestation period for commercialisation.
