Since the publication of the first Global Blockchain Benchmarking Study in September 2017, the enterprise blockchain ecosystem has undergone considerable changes: while two years ago, the industry landscape was mostly dominated by half-hearted experiments and short-lived proofs-ofconcepts — often announced with great fanfare and publicity, the hype has gradually given way to genuine development of sustainable blockchain networks that are increasingly being deployed in production environments. Between July and November 2018, the research team collected survey data from more than 160 start-ups, established companies, central banks, and other public-sector institutions from 49 different countries across the world. Additional data on 67 live enterprise blockchain networks was collected between April and June 2019 to provide new, empirical insights into the state of the ecosystem and capture major trends of the rapidly-evolving industry.
