“You’ve come a long way, blockchain!” declares Forbes in the 2022 Blockchain 50, an annual list that tracks how billion dollar companies from around the world are innovating with the technology. Now in its fourth year, the Forbes Blockchain 50 has evolved just as much as this market.
The mainstreaming of both cryptocurrencies and their underlying technologies have reshaped business around the world. For many companies on the list, the innovation comes from new models of investing and transacting in crypto markets. But, as Forbes put it, “Cryptocurrencies hog the spotlight, but blockchain’s biggest innovations are below the surface, saving billions each year for the world’s largest companies.”
For the companies on the list that have made blockchain technology a core foundation of their business operations, Hyperledger technologies, particularly Hyperledger Fabric, continue to be the standard. At least 13 companies on this year’s list have built their strategic networks on Hyperledger technologies, far outpacing any other technology or platform among these kinds of deployments.
Congratulations to Hyperledger Foundation members DTCC, Fujitsu, Nornickel, Oracle, Tech Mahindra, Tencent and Walmart for making the Forbes Blockchain 50 in 2022.
