OSCG Cafe: Creating Value with Open Source Blockchain Business Models
From Hardy Schwamm on September 25th, 2020
Our speaker was Dr Trevor Clohessy. Trevor is a information technology workshop facilitator, guest speaker and an information technology / systems lecturer and researcher at GMIT. Trevor was introduced by Dr. Eoin Cullina of the Whitaker Institute at NUI Galway .
As an introduction to open source and business models in the context of blockchain technologies, this talk was designed to discuss the factors that have made open source and business models essential and important in today’s interconnected digital world. This talk will highlight how business value can be derived from open source blockchain technologies.
While open source software has become the de-facto business model for technology, there is a scarcity of empirical evidence, apart from Bitcoin and Ethereum, to suggest how open source can be used by organisations to leverage business model value from blockchain.
The talk will present an overview of a bespoke blockchain business model strategyzer grid that can be used to create robust open source blockchain business models.
