Summary

GlobalData's "Blockchain in Metals & Mining - Thematic Research", analyses how blockchain technology is affecting the global metals & mining industry now, in addition to key trends shaping across the industry.

Blockchain and its associated technologies burst into the public consciousness in 2015 after a relatively slow build-up over several years. The technology is often referred to as “distributed ledger technology” (DLT) and it is a means by which the participants in a distributed network each maintain a copy of an immutable ledger of transactions, and where transactions can be executed without the need for a single, central coordinating authority. It allows organizations to transact business with one another without being subject to third-party control. However, this freedom comes at a significant cost.
