#2 - IBM (NYSE:IBM)

International Business Machines logoMany of us think of International Business Machines (IBM) as a relic of times past. They no longer produce personal computers and largely sell specialized technology service to Fortune 500 companies. This might not be exciting to most, but IBM has been able to introduce and scale new technologies into the Enterprise like no one else. 

IBM is now focusing on democratic applications of the blockchain, allowing its customers to create networks, setup governance rules, invite members into the network and validate transactions. It has launched a consultancy for blockchain technologies teaching companies how to best use the technology and create their own blockchain networks. It has also launched a "blockchain accelerator" program to help guide businesses through the technical and legal ramifications of running blockchain networks.

IBM has also launched an open-source collaboration initiative called Hyperledger that hopes to expand the use of the blockchain in all industries. Hyperledger already has more than 130 member companies in industries spanning financial services, manufacturing and technology all working together to create a distributed ledger framework that is standardized and open.
