A hybrid programme events from Blockchain Ireland will explore the unique opportunities of this exciting technology – 30 May 2022
Blockchain is one of the most significant technological breakthroughs of the 21st century. The blockchain market size is projected to grow from USD 4.9 billion in 2021, to USD 67.4 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 68.4% during the forecast period. The value of the crypto market is now worth in excess of $2 trillion. The technology is reshaping businesses across the globe, and the associated innovation is outpacing existing business models, ecosystems, policy and legislation.
By 2030, blockchain could be used as a foundational technology for 30% of the global customer base, according to Gartner. Furthermore, as the business world moves towards holding and trading more digital assets, with Deloitte reporting intent among more than three quarters (76%) of executives within a decade, blockchain is expected to become a critical enabling layer, not just for enterprise, but for organisation of all shapes and sizes.
The European Blockchain Service Infrastructure is predicted to become the backbone for public and private cross-border services, for companies and citizens alike.
Blockchain, crypto and Web3 will be key building blocks for a new generation of services and applications in finance, healthcare, retail, manufacturing, government, and beyond.
Blockchain Ireland Week 2022 will explore the developing role of these technologies in Ireland and globally, examining their value, understanding their impact and asking how Ireland can take full advantage.
