Blockchain/Cloud thesis research topic

Hi everyone,

I will start working at a big4 consulting company at the cloud department for an internship. In collaboration with them I will write my thesis. I am still looking for a topic to write about. I am interested into researching how blockchain could be integrated into current cloud systems and IF it would be useful for companies or not.

  1. What are the hot topics within cloud at the moment?
  2. What are potential blockchain applications within the cloud? (short/long term)

Any advice is highly appreciated!
