More about Blockchain for Wall Street:

The blockchain technology space has evolved rapidly during the past year, as Wall Street firms have begun to kick the tires of early software and engage in proof-of-concepts, around which much discussion has taken place. The coming year will be a crucial one as firms move from PoCs to limited rollouts in production environments - involving key blockchain technology choices, and IT infrastructure and integration decisions. Truly, the time for just talk is at an end. The time to do the blockchain walk is upon us. That walk begins at Blockchain for Wall Street!

Blockchain technology has leapt to prominence in the past year notably with the establishment of the open source Hyperledger Project hosted by the Linux Foundation. We examine its potential impact on financial services and asset management. We show how, using the Cloudsoft Application Management Platform, we can rapidly deploy and manage the Hyperledger Fabric running on IBM Blue Box clusters in San Jose, London, and Singapore, creating a geographically distributed Blockchain network.
