Blockchain consultant here.
I joined IBMs blockchain practice 3 years ago after having done blockchain research at Uni before.
Try to understand blockchain governance, that’s the most underdeveloped part.
Two biggest fields are supply chain provenance and finance.
If you’re interested in a blockchain consulting job at IBM I might be able to find a referral for you. We’re currently hiring blockchain consultants and architect across various geographies. Enterprise blockchain is one of the few things IBM is actually still a market leader in. If your interested in the cryptocurrency aspect I recommend looking elsewhere.


Thanks for the reply.

How secure is a consensus mechanism that uses a comparably small number of parties to validate or 'police' transactions though? I can't see how it's ever possible to reach the same level of trustlessness as with a public proof of work or proof of stake mechanism.

You called out the example of Central parties acting dishonestly (which has certainly occured historically, e.g. ratings agencies) but it's also conceivable that a majority of the parties in a system could collude (e.g. What happened in the libor rigging scandal). You would need a large number of third parties involved in securing the blockchain system who are not partial to the transactions occurring/the data being stored.

Market leader? 🤔
