Abstract

The authors illuminate the potential and the limitations of blockchain technology as the new currency of trust in organizational life. They have found that building trust within organizations requires leaving room for vulnerability, which makes blockchain unsuitable. However, it shows more promise for building trust between organizations because it acts as a regulatory middleman.

Keywords: blockchain, trust, cryptography
