The Times They Are A Changin’ – How Big Will Mutual Distributed Ledgers Become?

Tuesday, 02 February 2016

We often use our Global Financial Centres Index questionnaire to conduct small pieces of research of financial professionals’ opinions on topical issues. We recently asked “On a scale of 1 to 10, how significant will Mutual Distributed Ledgers (aka blockchain technology) be for finance (where say, “the ATM” = 3, “the computer” = 5, “the internet” = 7)”. We had 350 responses of which 200 scored the importance as seven or higher and the overall mean score was 6.6 - almost as high as the internet.
