The Block

The Block, a publication within the portfolio of TechForge Media, is founded on one core tenet: the belief that the potential of distributed ledger technologies (DLT) for enterprise applications and use cases is vast.

Blockchain technology – an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way – is advancing and moving further away from its roots in Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. While Bitcoin remains the only in-production example of blockchain at scale today, the possibilities outside of this, from telecoms, to healthcare, to energy and more, are there.

The Block focuses on the main and emerging players in the ecosystem, the use cases, as well as the enterprise and developer outlook on what is predicted by Grand View Research to be a $7.7 billion market by 2024.

Colm Hebblethwaite is the editor at The Block and is always looking to to bring the latest developments in this cutting-edge area of technology to both businesses and consumers.
