According to Vancouver GRC SaaS company Diligent, ninety-five per cent of boards are actively seeking knowledge on the benefits and risks of blockchain-based digital assets like cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
That data point was included in a new report released today by Diligent in collaboration with Silicon Valley Director’s Exchange (SVDX), a non-profit organization offering educational and networking programs to boards of directors.
The report Blockchain Digital Assets: Fad, Disruption or Strategic Driver? reveals how nearly 200 corporate directors are thinking about blockchain-based digital assets as they pertain to roles and responsibilities in the boardroom.
“Blockchain-based digital assets have risen on the radars of boards over the last few years, as digital currencies are adopted into mainstream B2B payment flows and central banks across the world,” said Dottie Schindlinger, Executive Director of the Diligent Institute.
“These results tell us that despite the turbulence of the industry, 40% of boards believe understanding digital assets like crypto, including its risks and benefits, will be important to their organizations’ competitiveness in the future.”
