9.Her advice to companies about starting blockchain.

 She says:

  • The first thing companies should do is to make sure that they have gotten smart on the technology and have a baseline understanding of what it is, what it can do, and definitely what it can’t do.
  • The second thing to do is to research what else is happening in their sector, in their industry. What are their industry peers or leaders doing?
  • And then it is important for them to narrow on what are the actual pain points they are experiencing that they want to focus on and prioritize.
  • Then they should take a step back from there and understand whether or not blockchain can be part of the tech stack that helps solve that.
  • So problem and pain point first, and then figure out if blockchain is applicable.
