Scientists have found out how blockchain will affect the Russian economy

Russian scientists from Tatarstan have identified basiccriteria for determining the demand for blockchain technology among domestic enterprises. A single measurement scale will become the basis for diagnosing risks and the impact of blockchain on economic development.

The mathematical model is based on statistics.demand for blockchain development in Russia for 2015-2018 In 2017, the use of technology increased 10 times, and enterprises from the real sector of the economy, such as Gazprom and Lukoil, began to appear among consumers. In 2015-2016 the bulk of consumers were financial institutions, including Vneshekombank, Sberbank and Alfa Bank.

Scientists have analyzed indicators:

  • The number of large companies that have implemented blockchain;
  • The number of publications by Russian researchers on the topic;
  • The number of regulations in the field of digitalization of the Russian economy;
  • The dynamics of Google’s issuance at the request of “blockchain technology”.

Researchers note that the activity of companies depends on the cryptocurrency rate and emphasize that the legislation is still lagging behind development trends by at least six months.

The work does not address one of the most importantindicators - the demand for blockchain programmers. According to KPMG research, most banks are now looking for specialists in Big Data analysis, blockchain and DLT technologies. In addition, new programs of study at universities in the field of “Blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies”, the number of which is growing, were ignored.

The cryptocurrency industry needs not only programmers, but also lawyers, so the G.V. Plekhanova announces admission to the 11th stream of the Blockchain for Lawyers continuing education program.
