Summary

Table of Contents

This IDC Financial Insights report explores blockchain and decentralized ledger technology (DLT), the current state of the market, and its potential impact on the payment industry. Investment and interest in blockchains and distributed ledgers has taken off, and investors, start-ups, and incumbents are beginning to explore the potential of this exciting new technology. It also examines the questions about the utility, scalability, and reliability of blockchains and decentralized ledgers. IDC Financial Insights believes blockchain will affect financial services and payments in profound ways, and that now is the time to understand the technology, why it is well suited for changing the payment space and how to begin integrating it into product and strategy plans.James Wester, research director at IDC Financial Insights, says, "Blockchain has emerged during a time of incredible change in the payment space. Even though banks and technology vendors are grappling with many issues right now, they should pay particular attention to blockchains. It represents a complete shift in the way electronic transactions have been handled for decades, and participants in the market should begin thinking about how they will adapt to it."

  • Report Delivery
    • How and when I will receive my Report?
    • Most reports are delivered right away in a pdf format, while others are accessed via a secure link and access codes. Do note that sometimes reports are sent within a 12 hour period, depending on the time zones. However, you can contact us to escalate this. Should you need a hard copy, you can check if this option is offered for the particular report, and pay the related fees.
  • Payment conditions
    • What payment methods do you accept?
      1. Credit card : VISA, American Express, Mastercard, or
      2. You can download an invoice to pay by wire transfer, check, or via a Purchase Order from your company, or

    • I’m not satisfied. Can I be refunded?
    • No. Once your order has been processed and the publisher has received a notification to send you the report, we cannot issue any refund or cancel any order. As these are not ‘traditional’ products that can be returned, reports that are dispatched are considered to be ‘consumed’.

    • The license that you should acquire depends on the number of persons that need to access the report. This can range from Single User (only one person will have the right to read or access the report), or Department License (up to 5 persons), to Site License (a group of persons based in the same company location), or Corporate License (the entire company personnel based worldwide). However, as publishers have different terms and conditions, we can look into this for you.
