Re: One thousand CEOs sounds like a high number...
@danielcawrey: You are right and I'm sure IBM has been totally successful yet in taking the tech to the next level and you see other companies trying to do the same. But yes, I don't see a big blockbuster case yet outside of Bitcoin, which is very much the opposite of a solid enterprise use.

@Mhhfive: The study did not mention a particular sector, so my assumption is that it drew from a wider customer base than just financial. That said, this being IBM, I'm sure financial weighed pretty heavy in their respondents. You can also probably count on healthcare and government.

The plan for IBM seems to involve getting in early and offering a platform for this technology even before there are many use cases. There are some pilots happening with blockchain, but outside of cryptocurrency there hasn't been a huge blockbuster use case.

At least not yet.

I'd like to know if this one-third of CEOs are all in the financial sector? Otherwise, I'm skeptical about that many CEOs being interested or already working with blockchain tech. I suppose if they're counting ecommerce CEOs who run companies that simply accept bitcoin payments?
