Global: Blockchain Spending in 2019 to Grow to $2.9 Billion, 88.7% Growth Since 2018


The amount spent on blockchain technology by businesses seeking to utilise the trust-enhancing features of distributed ledgers is expected to grow to $2.9 million in 2019. This would represent a growth of 88.7% over the $1.5 billion spent on the technology during 2018. The reported figures come from the International Data Corporation (IDC) who recently updated its “Worldwide Semiannual Blockchain Spending Guide.” According to a representative for the IDC, the tech has moved out of the design phase and into actual use and this shift will drive a lot of the expected spending through the next ten months.
