Blockchain technology has made a positive relationship between two unknown parties without any mediator or intrusion from the third party. Blockchain uses the decentralized system to keep records. In the databases backed by Blockchain Technology, entries can only be done by passing an authenticated encryption. Blockchain also ensures full transparency in the organization. The data is protected by powerful encryption which gives security in the system. Outside hacks or data tampering is not possible in Blockchain Technology and gives complete peace of mind. Thus, we can say that in a digital economy, Blockchain has the potential to bring positive impact to the economy with the current industry trend. Read also: Why blockchain for business

Impact Of Blockchain Technology

Moving into the year 2018, it is rational to assume that Blockchain will be exposed to its full potential which will change the world of ‘Digital Economy’. There would be other potentials of Blockchain in other industries as well.
