Steps for success

Many blockchain projects fail to launch because they aren’t set up for success. Follow our simple steps before you start to increase the likelihood of project delivery and success.

1. Be clear

Make sure that the project is delivering on a defined business requirement. For success, blockchain projects must be demand, not solution-led.

2. Be business focused

Focus on a project that reduces cost and complexity and that improves efficiency. Set clear goals and expectations to help ensure a clear ROI.

3. Get the right support

Be clear about your team’s knowledge and look for the necessary support to fill any gaps.

4. Start fresh

Implement Symbol from the beginning of the project, don’t try to re-engineer existing technology into the protocol.

5. Ensure participation

Try to include as many participants from your supply or value chain as possible – most successful blockchain projects occur where participation can be mandated.

6. Test & Learn

Test your solution and learn from the lessons of previous projects, use PoCs and ask for advice to test for value.
