The conundrum of resourcing DLT nodes: Nine considerations in practice

Deciding on whether Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) nodes should be insourced or outsourced is becoming urgent now that DLT projects transition from a pilot phase to a production environment.

Currently it is unclear what considerations could be made leading to such a decision.

In this white paper we introduce nine considerations regarding resourcing of DLT nodes, based on interviews with experts. This non-exhaustive list of considerations can be used by any DLT project that is moving from a pilot phase to a production environment. We share and discuss several insights that the experts made in practice regarding resourcing of DLT nodes.

Our aim is to contribute to the DLT community by sharing these considerations and experiences regarding resourcing of DLT nodes. They may serve as a guidance for any company that is considering resourcing of DLT nodes.
