Blockchain’s Impact on Your Organization
Christian Catalini, interviewed by Paul Michelman

The implications for areas such as accounting, contract negotiation and enforcement, sales and marketing, and capital investment are myriad. Companies should start exploring how this technology could impact their industry and processes.
