IDG Contributor Network: Why banks should stay well clear of blockchain
21 April 2017, 4:14 pm

WANdisco sees this first hand: We’re increasingly being approached by banks that think this is the kind of thing we do (it isn’t). And why are they interested?

Banks need blockchain like a hole in the head.
