Studie: Blockchain verändert die Zukunft der Wirtschaft

Die Technologie erhöht das Vertrauen in Geschäftsbeziehungen.

Das IBM Institute of Business Value (IBV) hat eine neue Studie zum Thema Blockchain veröffentlicht. In der Studie mit dem Titel »Fast forward: Rethinking Enterprises, Ecosystems and Economies with Blockchains« beschreiben die Autoren, wie Blockchain-Technologie Geschäftsbeziehungen verändern kann. Hierbei kommen sie zu folgenden Ergebnissen:

  1. Blockchain-Technologie reduziert die Komplexität von wirtschaftlichen Abläufen
  2. Sie kann alle Geschäftspartner und Beteiligten in einem gemeinsamen, transparenten Netzwerk integrieren
  3. Blockchain-Technologie verlangt keine überbordende IT und ist gleichzeitig sehr effizient
  4. Sie kann flexibel innerhalb kürzester Zeit aufgesetzt werden
  5. Blockchain-Technologie hilft dabei, sich selbst steuernde kognitive Netzwerke, zum Beispiel zwischen Sensoren im Internet-of-Things, zu ermöglichen

IBM Study: Blockchain to Recast the Future of Business

Blockchain technology will enable greater trust in business, creating an »all-in« economy fueled by unfettered, autonomous organizations

IBM (NYSE: IBM) today released a new study that describes how blockchain networks will vaporize current frictions in the economy that are inhibiting business growth, propelling the movement of capital and exchange of value to fundamentally change how markets function.

Today, a number of frictions — such as participants of a transaction not having access to the same information or the high price of intermediaries — add costs and complexity that drags on global business and trade. Blockchain technology — which creates a permanent and transparent record of transactions — will reduce or eliminate these frictions, recasting our institutions and economy in new form with far greater efficiency and far less risk, finds the IBM Institute for Business Value (IBV) study, »Fast forward: Rethinking Enterprises, Ecosystems and Economies with Blockchains.«


Distributed ledgers will become the foundation of a robust system of trust — a decentralized platform for massive collaboration. The study predicts that by using blockchain technology the enterprise can:

  • Overcome complexity to scale freely.
  • Integrate vertically or laterally across a network or ecosystem, or both.
  • Be small and transact with super efficiency.
  • Be a coalition of individuals that come together briefly.
  • Operate autonomously and as part of a self-governing, cognitive network.


As a result, blockchains will enable profound economic progress enjoyed and driven by a greater number of individuals and organizations. New services delivered on blockchain networks will accelerate access and liberate those that were once locked out of efficient value creation to fully participate in an »all-in” economy.

The study contains the following guidance for businesses looking to get started utilizing blockchain:

  1. Identify frictions that are holding back your enterprise and experiment in discrete areas where the attributes of blockchains drive rapid impact.
  2. Explore the role of alliances in making blockchains scalable, open and interoperable.
  3. As business models are disrupted by blockchains, think through how you can make money in new ways.
  4. Understand how blockchains will extract further value from other technologies, such as big data analytics, the Internet of Things and cognitive computing.


IBM is actively working with hundreds of clients to understand what it takes to make blockchain ready for business. Through its open source contributions and resources for blockchain software developers, IBM is advancing the science of blockchain, helping to remove complexity, and making it more accessible and open. Financial services, supply chains, IoT, risk management, digital rights management and healthcare are some of the areas that are poised for dramatic change using blockchain networks.

This cross-industry report is the first in a blockchain series IBM’s IBV team will develop over the coming months. We plan to interview over a thousand executives on their experiences, intentions and expectations about the technology’s impact on their businesses. Future reports will offer industry-specific perspectives. As each becomes available, it will be posted on .
