90% of enterprise blockchain solutions will be obsolete by 2021 - but those that work will add trillions in value, Gartner predicts

Research company Gartner has predicted that as much as 90% of current enterprise blockchain implementations will fail by 2021 due to a fragmented market and "unrealistic expectations," ITPro writes.

“Blockchain platforms are emerging platforms and, at this point, nearly indistinguishable in some cases from core blockchain technology,” said Adrian Lee, senior research director at Gartner. “Many CIOs overestimate the capabilities and short-term benefits of blockchain as a technology to help them achieve their business goals."
