Blockchain Industry Verticals

I started tracking potential applications of blockchain technology in August, 2016.  I now have articles and/or documents on blockchain use in 57 application areas (see table below).  This doesn’t count the fact that I have 32 sub-categories in the area of Finance and 18 areas within Healthcare.

Blockchain Companies

Blocktonite started keeping track of companies that were meaningfully engaged with blockchain in the summer of 2016. By 4/3/17 we were up to 391 companies. As of 1/15/2018, that number is 770.

Some of these are huge multinationals (IBM, Microsoft, SAP, large banks like BNP Paribas), some are consulting companies, some are law firms – but most are start-ups.
