Sunsten offers tools to managers to assess their blockchain needs. These tools can be seen as vehicles to generate new use cases, to elaborate on existing use cases, and to discuss various misuses of and misconceptions around blockchain technologies. Married with the output of these tools, Sunsten highlights contexts that favor blockchain technologies, delves into attempts to implement blockchains, and some of the known obvious and obscure adoption barriers that can thwart commercialization efforts. What is more, classification and clear presentation of various governance models and their potential to improve existing business processes and create new businesses form a backbone of Sunsten.
The tools provide a data-driven overview of the blockchain space. Descriptive statistics offer a realistic picture of the size of the space, the various important players, and promising ways forward. Sunsten initially focuses on topics on blockchain technologies, however, it will broaden up its scope to provide tools that replicate the value they offer on blockchain technologies for other emerging technologies. At its core, Sunsten inspires to become a go-to place for rigorous and thought-through knowledge on regulatory, socio-economical, societal as well as other innate aspects of emerging technologies.
