IBM & Blockchain
IBM believes that blockchain will do for business what the Internet did for information.
IBM is actively working on more than 400 projects with clients to understand what it takes to make blockchain ready for business and was the first to launch highly secure blockchain services that address regulatory compliance across financial services, government and healthcare industries.
By helping blockchain technology mature, IBM will accelerate the network effect, enabling organizations and their ecosystems to work together using the technology to create frictionless business transactions. At the same time, this trusted environment could potentially be used to ease regulatory burdens and simplify oversight and governance.
IBM is a founding and premier member of Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration, hosted by The Linux Foundation.
Through its open source commitment, 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.
