SUMMARY

This report on blockchain reveals that the DLT community in the UK has 260 DLT companies headquartered there. 

This community can be split into four different groups, the paper indicates - distributed ledgers, dApp (distributed applications) developers, centralized systems, and service providers.

DLT firms operate across various sectors such as professional services, social enterprise, recruitment, education, entertainment, insurance, construction, health, sport, renewable energy, manufacturing, and telecoms, among others.

Financial services firms constitute the main client base DLT activity in the UK, the paper says.

The document notes that DLT companies are already creating revenues but that just of companies interviewed for this report had conducted Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). 

Another of the paper's findings is that three-quarters of companies admitted to being concerned regarding blockchain regulation. More than half indicated another challenge was to open a UK bank account and nearly half expressed that they would like to receive more legal advice.
