In a previous paper (The Digital World: I - Bitcoin: from history to real live, Guégan, 2018), we explain some limits and interests of the Bitcoin system and why the central bankers and regulators need to take some decision on its existence. In this article, we develop some alternatives to the Bitcoin blockchain which are considered by the banking system and industries.
