Industry Implications of Blockchain: A Situational Awareness Tool for Professionals
We are proud to announce an email newsletter that helps subscribers sort through the noise and hype around blockchain. Grayline’s Blockchain Monitor™ helps you identify how and when these technologies will drive structural change within and across industries. The tool also exposes you to new business and operational models that are emerging out of the blockchain featureset.
“Regardless of what you think about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, the topic of blockchain is pervasive. The Blockchain Monitor helps me filter the signal from the noise, separating the real from the hype so I can focus on what matters for my business.”

The Blockchain Monitor helps professionals sort through the noise to understand the industry implications of emerging blockchain technologies. We are all inundated with news and breathless announcements on blockchain, cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, and the like. We know that most professionals do not have time to grind through the internet to sort through what matters and what doesn’t. The Blockchain Monitor is does the work for you (and more!) so that you can quickly understand the reality of blockchain technology, and its potential implications – beyond the hype. It is extremely important to have a grounded understanding of the real implications and a sense for when, how, and why these innovations matter.
We built the Blockchain Monitor to be a trusted voice to help customers understand the emerging industry implications of blockchain technology. There are a lot of important changes occurring around the world right now, which are going to ultimately affect businesses and governments in a significant way. While we see blockchain as one of these changes, we appreciate that it can be really difficult to sort through all the noise to understand what is actually happening. This is not an investment newsletter and we’re not trying to be bitcoin millionaires here – we just want to help customers understand where this technology is going to intersect with our careers, societies, and lives in the coming years.
What We’re Not
Don’t Take Our Word For It
“Blockchain is already having an impact on the ideas of ‘money’ and ‘value’ and will have profound impact on policy and business going forward. The Blockchain Monitor has helped provide me a diverse survey of what is happening in blockchain not only in the U.S. but around the world. The examples they provide and the resources they lead me to have been very helpful in enhancing my understanding of this technology.”

“I am focused on my ad tech business but I keep hearing how ‘blockchain’ is going to disrupt digital advertising. I don’t buy it, but I definitely need to stay up to speed so I can decide if and when I need to pay closer attention. I have used the Blockchain Monitor to develop a real sense of where things stand with blockchain, so I can focus on what is in front of me.”

Who The Blockchain Monitor Is For
Forward-looking professionals at companies and investment firms who are not directly exposed to cryptocurrencies, but who need to know when and how blockchain developments intersect with industry and company strategy. Blockchain applications will become increasingly important for a variety of industry applications, and careers and organizations alike will benefit from foresight into these emerging developments.
Public Sector Professionals
Federal, state, and city officials, and those who support the public sector, that need to think proactively around how blockchain technologies affect both existing and future policy, provide new opportunities, and create new challenges. The distributed trust mechanisms inherent in blockchain will enable entirely new ways of thinking about governance, identity, and services management.
Early and mid-career professionals have both a challenge and opportunity to align their skills with emerging macro trends to ensure they remain on the leading edge of their industries and career fields. Blockchain will be an increasingly important element of the global economy for decades, and represents an opportunity for career enhancement in entirely new fields that will emerge alongside blockchain technologies.

Globally engaged, forward-thinking individuals from all fields who are interested to better understand how emerging technologies are reshaping our societies and communities. Blockchain development is global; the Blockchain Monitor helps sort through the noise to understand what is happening around the world, how initiatives in other regions of the world may differ from those here in the US, and how that will affect our lives.
