Understanding Applications of Blockchain for Finance and Accounting: Use Cases, Investments, and Ecosystem Challenges
This IDC Perspective offers areas of consideration for finance blockchain use cases, third-party service investments, and blockchain platforms and discusses challenges that could create barriers to adoption.
"Buyers should look to service providers that have end-to-end blockchain services and domain expertise.
