Blockchain - Out of the blocks: From hype to prototype


May 2016

Leaders across financial services institutions are both concerned and excited by the businesses implications arising from blockchain technology. Firms across the globe have begun to educate themselves and are now exploring how the blockchain could be used to bring new services to the market and to enhance existing business and operational capabilities. 

In this Paper, based on an EMEA FSI C-Suite survey of over 3,000 people conducted jointly by Efma and Deloitte, we seek to explain how blockchain can impact the financial services industry and how companies are reacting to this development.

Leveraging on these insights and on KBC's real life experience, the Paper will present a view of what is driving FI's blockchain journey, where they currently stand and what actions are needed to fully understand and exploit this exponential technology.
