Blockchain is more than the latest buzzword. It’s a powerful technology poised to revolutionize business transaction networks by accelerating processes, minimizing errors, improving trust and more.
Blockchain technology has immense potential beyond just cryptocurrency transactions. It could completely change financial and business transactions, global taxation, insurance, real estate deals, and more, including many social impact uses cases With blockchain, we can imagine a world in which contracts are embedded in digital code and stored in transparent, shared databases, where they are protected from deletion, tampering, and revision. In this world every agreement, every process, every task, and every payment would have a digital record and signature that could be identified, validated, stored, and shared. Intermediaries like lawyers, brokers, and bankers might no longer be necessary. Individuals, organizations, machines, and algorithms would freely transact and interact with one another with little friction. This is the immense potential of blockchain.
