When Trust Is Not Enough to Mobilize Blockchains: A Mobilization-Decision Theory Perspective

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


The mobilization decision theory provides an insight into why mobilization occurs and the factors that result in mobilization. In the last decade, Block Chain technology has been touted as a technology that facilitates trust between unknown parties. Trust is at the core of all human interaction, be it commercial or social. However, the global adoption of Block Chain is low. At a global scale, relatively few organizations have mobilized Block Chain to either handle or support their organizational processes. In order to understand why this is the case, the Mobilization decision theory is used to explain why the global adoption of Blockchain is low and what needs to change to facilitate its widespread adoption at a global scale.
