The scope of the analyst is not focused solely on the blockchain, as some other decentralized technologies could also be used.
It will also be a responsibility of the person to take potential use cases which have already been tested and to “sell them” to the other departments of the company.

Shell Tries To Enter The Blockchain Market
Shell launched a blockchain platform in November last year and it looks like the company is set to start up even more blockchain businesses. The platform was focused on trading oil and will replace the centuries-old process that was being used before it.
