While blockchain is being highly regarded as a disruptive technology, surprisingly there are not many successful business cases reported so far. In this talk, let us explore some possible business models and applications of blockchain other than cryptocurrencies. Specifically, through a few examples of blockchain applications in supply chain, we illustrate how a decentralized and trustworthy data platform can reduce the cost of trust in trust economy. Moreover, we envision how blockchain can support business and deliver values, build networks and connect partners.
