Creating Value with Open Source Blockchain Business Models

Clohessy, Trevor

Cullina, Eoin

Presentation for the Open Scholarship Cafe from 25th September 2020 "Creating Value with Open Source Blockchain Business Models"

As an introduction to open source and business models in the context of blockchain technologies, this talk is designed to discuss the factors that have made open source and business models essential and important in today’s interconnected digital world. This talk will highlight how business value can be derived from open source blockchain technologies.

While open source software has become the de-facto business model for technology, there is a scarcity of empirical evidence, apart from Bitcoin and Ethereum, to suggest how open source can be used by organisations to leverage business model value from blockchain.

The talk will present an overview of a bespoke blockchain business model strategyzer grid that can be used to create robust open source blockchain business models.


The speaker was Dr Trevor Clohessy. Trevor is a information technology workshop facilitator, guest speaker and an information technology / systems lecturer and researcher at GMIT
