|Title||Blockchain applications for SME transformation: a pilot framework|
As blockchain technology matures, governments, banks, healthcare organisations, asset management companies and other corporations explore the potential of the new technology to transform transactions and improve security, efficiency and profitability. While certain aspects of blockchain, such as decentralisation and immutability, are well understood, the technology has evolved beyond the original Bitcoin blockchain, resulting in the need to provide a framework that classifies blockchain infrastructure and aids potential adoption decision making. The framework is particularly relevant to and urgently needed by SMEs, who stand to benefit from the new technology but are disadvantaged by the lack of knowledge and expertise. This paper follows a pilot study that looks into blockchain applications taxonomy and proposes such a framework.
