Description of why this would be an interesting post
This paper considers the potential of blockchain technology to empower distributed and decentralized local electricity markets. By social network analysis, this paper compares the existing with the potential future system’ actor configuration and the corresponding expected shifts in functions and network position of the actors.
The reason I choose this paper is that it performs an outstanding Market Potential Analysis via Social Network Analysis with merely 11 research participants’ interviews. Within two years, it gets a very high impact factor of 38 citations.
I think this paper can be a helpful guide for new Blockchain Applications Initiators who want to do their own Market Potential Analysis. By doing so, they can know the potential impact on relative stakeholders, and how to design their product to fit the trend.
