Here is an excellent, brief article which addresses at a high level some of the ‘more wild’ claims about blockchain and how it relates to charities.

The first paragraph reads thus, and is a good synopsis: “Claims range from it being the solution to the problems the charity sector didn’t know it had, an existential threat to charities’ very existence, or a flash in the pan that is not worth worrying about.

None of these are quite right. Blockchain technology is not about to solve any problems (real or imagined) the sector has with public trust and charities are not about to haemorrhage supporters, beneficiaries and staff to new entities”
