The blockchain technology timeline highlights emerging case studies across the built environment and examines their rate of maturity. From energy microgrids to car sharing payment systems, the timeline provides an insight into plausible timescales for a technology’s development.
The timeline was developed through comprehensive research and interviews with experts across the industry. The maturity level of the case studies is based on the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) framework. Each case study estimates the year the specific case study is expected to transition through the product development cycle: from idea, concept, demonstration, commercialisation and into early adoption. Based on the interviews, a set of data points were collected with the average early adoption represented.
