This course covers business blockchains and use cases and expected future developments in the use of blockchain.  In addition to the two primary business blockchains covered in previous courses, this lesson looks at 7 more widely used business blockchains.  The major advantages of blockchain for business use, and some data on blockchain application improvements is provided.

The lesson then offers suggestions on how to keep up with advances in blockchain technology, and use business strategy war games to stress test contemplated blockchain applications.
