Overview

From traceable supply chains to permanent identity for refugees, blockchain is pioneering transparent and secure business processes. Blockchain technology provides new infrastructure to build the next innovative applications beyond cryptocurrencies, driving profound, positive changes across business, communities and society.

We are at an exciting phase in the evolution of Blockchain-based solutions, as we move from prototyping to pilots and production. This is especially true of Accenture, regarded as one of the top 10 biggest Blockchain companies. Accenture’s Blockchain developers work at the heart of the Blockchain technology landscape, working with multiple alliance partners - DAH, Ripple, R3, Microsoft, EEA, Hyperledger etc.

Accenture’s involved in a variety of “Blockchain for Good” programs including their involvement with the global ID2020 alliance of governments, NGOs and private sector committed to solving the challenge of the 1.1 billion people living without an identity. Read up on Accenture’s work in Blockchain.

Be part of the Accenture Blockchain Hackathon, where you get to work on some exciting real-life use cases.
