    Hi all - We had a great IBM Champions Chat livestream and had so many questions and such a great conversation that I wanted to continue the conversation here.


    Livestream Replay

    If you want to watch the replay,  you can catch it on your favorite channel as shown below.

    Questions from the Live chat

    Here are few questions from the chat that you can engage with to share your answers and opinions.


    • How in your experience handling the key question on ROI ?
    • As IoT and IIoT (Industrial IoT) becomes more prominent (think Starlink and others connecting devices) then smart contracts will be the way M2M (Machine to Machine) communications will happen.
    • I would have thought smart contracts would be an easy way to convince a company to jump into the blockchain process, but it's not always so - why isn't it more attractive?
    • Glad i joined, using block chain for verification and very secure, but then we talk about marketing and potential use cases for tying data together from multiple sources. Means that data would have to be available at some level, doesn't that increase potential vulnerability once the data is used for mining? Marketing, predictive modeling, determining where people are placed for work that may be impacted by Covid to determine potential exposure?
    • The main hinderance here in Germany seems to be having a common digital solution in the first place, blockchain technology seems to be the least of their worries... Protocol level integration seems to have much more of an impact. We've managed to setup a borderless system for our COVID apps that preserves privacy at scale instead of putting everything in a random blockchain thanks to that different legislatory program.
    • Where's the difference between that use case and a trusted third party that just maintains a database of that information?
    If you have ideas on those or have other questions, feel free to jump in!
