Blockchain technology captured the banking industry's imagination throughout 2015 and 2016, as financial institutions and tech companies seized eagerly on the concept. Defined broadly, a blockchain is a distributed ledger – a "shared source of truth" that is updated automatically, auditable in real time, relies on no single party and cannot be doctored. Get up to speed on the current blockchain landscape, the pros and cons of various use cases, the fast-changing regulatory and technological challenges and the latest projects, ideas and developments in this frontier of fintech.
