A recent survey of the crypto-exchange, Coinbase is investigating, among other things, the importance of the Blockchain and crypto-currencies to the US-American universities. Meanwhile, the accounting firm Deloitte to the role of technology for businesses. A Comparison.
Periodically, the crypto-Community will benefit to the Blockchain with the latest studies and surveys, adaptation and cryptographic use. The Clients come from all sorts of industries, from politics, from the private sector or from the crypto scene. To the Blockchain, two recent studies of the crypto-exchange, Coinbase, and the auditing firm Deloitte consult with educational institutions and companies-topics.
Coinbase: In 42 percent of the Elite universities in the Blockchain is part of the curriculum
Together with Qriously Coinbase examines the role of the Blockchain and crypto at universities around the world. The study included 675 students from 50 of the most prestigious international universities. In 21 of these 50 universities, students are offered at least one course in the field of Blockchain and crypto-currencies. This corresponds to a cryptographic rate of 42 percent. These courses are spread over various institutes and chairs, which suggests that different aspects of the crypto-Economy will be taken into account in teaching.
The leading place among the crypto-savvy universities are the Stanford University, a total of ten courses to different areas of the crypto topics in its product range. Immediately afterwards, the New York-based Cornell University follows with a total of nine cryptographic rates. All other examined educational institutions are far behind.
The survey also the cryptographic use of American students. So nine percent of the respondents in the United States, to have a crypto course participated. 18 percent of the students also have crypto-currencies, a total of 26 per cent expressed the desire to learn more about crypto-currencies, and on such a course. This high number of Interested should also forward the decision-makers in the private sector.
Deloitte: 84 percent of the companies believe in a Mainstream adaptation
The Deloitte survey is taken a lot further than that of Coinbase. A total of 1.053 companies from Germany, France, the UK, China, Canada, Mexico and the United States were interviewed. From Germany of 132 companies took part. In addition, the focus here was less from the Spread of cryptographic knowledge, but rather the active use of the Blockchain by the company. The aim of the study was to find out when and how the Blockchain will enforce as an Instrument in the free economy.
A total of 84 percent of leading minds in the companies surveyed believe that the Blockchain would put applications in the Mainstream. Until it comes to that, it was only a matter of time. Use Cases are mainly seen in the areas of Supply Chain Management (53 percent), IoT (51 percent) and digital identity (50 per cent).
As the hurdles for the Blockchain-adaptation, most of the regulatory (39 percent), the existing structures (37 percent) and security concerns (35 percent). The biggest advantage of the Blockchain, the most in the higher speed allowed by the technology (32 percent), followed by a higher level of security (21 percent), and lower cost. 34 percent of the surveyed companies acknowledge the Blockchain a place in the Top 5 priorities of the strategy for the future and a further 29 per cent see it as a high priority, however, is not included in the Top 5.
The focus is crucial
Both surveys look at the Blockchain-adaptation from different angles. While it goes on Coinbase rather, the Knowledge about the Blockchain and crypto-currencies in the Mainstream to spread, it goes Deloitte, to the concrete application by the company. Both points are important in their own right, considered collectively, however, they provide much more information about the actual adaptation.
