Get ready for blockchain to reshape society - CIO | The Marteq Alert |
Blockchain technologies like distributed consensus, tokenisation, self-sovereign identification and smart contracts coupled with AI and IoT offer a means to decentralise the running of society, not just business. 

Enterprises have organised to compete in traditional societies with centralised control mechanisms. This type of organisation will struggle to be effective when it must deal with citizens and customers whose expectations will be reset by blockchain. They will expect the enterprise to respect the new power that blockchain confers on users — especially self-determination of economic value exchange at the micro level.

CIOs tell Gartner that blockchain is a technology they want to deploy. Sixty per cent expect some level of blockchain deployment within the next three years, according to the 2019 Gartner CIO survey.
