Title: Deloitte’s 2019 Global Blockchain Survey

OVERVIEW AND METHODOLOGY STATEMENT

Deloitte conducted this survey between February 8 and March 4, 2019, primarily as a research vehicle to gain greater insights into the overall attitudes and investments in blockchain as a technology. The release of the survey highlights in this article reflects those opinions and perceptions around blockchain and the potential impact of the technology in the future. The information shared provides summaries of a subset of the overall data and insights collected.

The survey polled a sample of 1,386 senior executives in a dozen countries (Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Luxembourg, Singapore, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States) at companies with US$500 million or more in annual revenue for US respondents and at companies with US$100 million or more in annual revenue for respondents outside of the United States. Respondents had at least a broad understanding of blockchain and were familiar with and able to comment on their organizations’ investment plans.

Between February 18 and March 8, 2019, we also administered the survey to executives at a group of 31 blockchain emerging disruptors to gauge their attitudes and investments in blockchain as a technology. All of these emerging disruptor respondents had revenue of less than US$50 million.Title:  Santander launches the first end-to-end blockchain bond
