2020 has been a year of change, even in the world of blockchain. We have seen progress in enterprise level adoption, ranging from blockchain technology being deployed for COVID-19 contact tracing on Jeju Island, to the United States Postal Service filing a patent for the use of blockchain in voting applications, to the State of California forming a Blockchain Working Group to define, evaluate, and recommend how to use and regulate blockchain technology.

For VMware Blockchain, our team is rapidly growing to meet the current challenge and demand. Our enterprise partners have engaged us to deploy mission-critical blockchain applications in industries such as financial market infrastructure. You may wonder: Why is VMware Blockchain ideal in enterprise blockchain applications? Because VMware Blockchain leverages VMware’s DNA and legacy in being the digital foundation for enterprises across the globe and harnessing the deep technical bench from our VMware Research from the Office of the CTO, to provide enterprise-grade capabilities such as: extensibility, security & privacy, performance, and scalability.

We invite you to learn more about VMware Blockchain in the Vision & Innovation track at VMworld 2020. Hear directly from the technology strategists and clients, as well as watch demos of how VMware Blockchain can be designed, deployed, and managed.
