Blockchain's Future, Protocol Commercialization, and Challenges Ahead

We, the authors, certainly hope that this updated edition has been an interesting, informative, and educational journey. We have focused on bringing forth not only the Hyperledger centric landscape for blockchain technology projects, but also an overall business perspective that explains the challenges and adoption patterns that follow. This has been an interesting project for all of us, given the rapid pace of changes and the evolution in the blockchain technology landscape and Hyperledger frameworks and tools. We have attempted to ensure that the content not only provides a basis for a strong foundation, but also provides deeper insights into some of the core elements of blockchain business network solution design. As active members of the blockchain technical community and technology thought leaders, we all believe that we still have a long way to go in solving some complex issues such as a privacy, confidentiality...
