IBM is one of the world’s most dominant research organizations. For 25 consecutive years, the company has held the record for generating the most patents in a year by a single entity. In 2017, IBM assigned 9,043 — 3,300 more than Samsung Electronic, which came in second.
Accordingly, it seems IBM doesn’t want to be behind anyone in the race of adopting blockchain technology. The Armok-based tech giant now has heavyweight blockchain clients like Visa, HSBC, and Walmart.
