Blockchain needs Linux-style open community to succeed in the enterprise, says IBM CTO

Matthew Finnegan | Oct. 7, 2015
"For any kind of blockchain technology to prevail it has to be open: it has to be built around a community where this is a governance model, similar to the governance model with OpenStack Cloud Foundry, Docker and Linux," says Jerry Cuomo.

However, Cuomo believes that some sort of consensus among the community will be important for the technology as it progresses and develops.

"At some point we hope that we can all do what is right with the industry, because the industry is not being served with four, five or six things that roughly do the same thing," he says.

"There is probably room for one or two - but probably if it goes beyond that we are doing the industry a disservice."
