  • "Blockchain, the technology behind digital currency such as Bitcoin, is a globally distributed ledger or database (distributed on the Internet) and accessible to all, where information can easily be moved and stored in a safe and private way. It is safe as registered transactions can not be changed afterwards. Conceptually, Blockchain facilitates secure online transactions between different parties in a controllable and inexpensive way, "explains Akershoek.

    'Blockchain can transform IT services'
    "Much of the hype around blockchains is focused on their potential to fundamentally change the financial sector - by reducing the cost and complexity of financial transactions and increasing transparency. Indeed, it already has a major impact on this sector. However, Blockchain cloud can also be an interesting technology to transform the way we deliver IT services in a multi-vendor IT ecosystem. "
