DLT & Telcos: Time to Tinder?
There is much talk in town about blockchain in banking, supply chain, energy and health. But did you ever wonder why there’s little buzz about blockchain in the telco sector? We at Untitled INC did. So we performed a deep dive into the subject accordingly.
Turns out that there have been many more swipes between blockchain and telecoms than you might expect: plenty of use cases for improving efficiency or building new services and business models are on the screen. Some promising PoCs have already been delivered and the new kids on the telco block already raised more than $210m.
Traction is increasing: The Carrier Blockchain Study Group’s footprint is growing, Swisscom launched its Blockchain AG, Colt/PCCW performed successful settlement trials, Deutsche Telekom tests blocking of stolen mobile phones and works on dedicated blockchain services… and there is much more happening in the ecosystem including activities by telecom regulators, equipment vendors and device manufacturers.
Not in the game yet? Our recommendation: It’s time to tinder!
