An Analysis of Blockchain Technology and its Commercial Exploitation

Timothy Fisher


Supervised by David W Walker; Moderated by Yukun Lai

This project requires you to report to a (hypothetical) group of venture capitalists on the commercial exploitation of blockchain technologies. You should explain how a blockchain works from a technical viewpoint, with emphasis on how it achieves distributed consensus, and provides a secure and trustable record of transactions. You should then go on to discuss how blockchain technology is currently being used, as well as areas in which it could be applied in the future, highlighting any promising prospects for commercial exploitation.
