Top 3 Industries Affected by the Blockchain Technology
We’re going to discuss some of the most affected industries and markets where blockchain could do wonders for all parties involved. Unfortunately, we can’t list them all, but here’s how some industries are incorporating blockchain into their business.
1. The Charity Industry
One of the many benefits to blockchain is the added level of transparency and security. Those in the charity industry need to make every purchase or transaction accounted for, and blockchain can turn this into a much smoother process. The Water Project and Save the Children are already using blockchain technology for their charitable affairs.
2. Supply Chain Management
Blockchain can help to reduce the number of errors and potential security threats dramatically. The advanced technology also allows for a more efficient process. Moreover, an industry giant FedEx has already announced plans to incorporate blockchain into its customer satisfaction processes shortly.
3. Real Estate
Blockchain cuts out the need for third parties, such as banks. Consequently, this innovative technology can help reduce the costs involved. Property investors are already using the technology to receive automatic payments as well as to distribute secure and transparent smart contracts. One example of blockchain being used within the industry was in 2014 when Lake Tahoe was bought for 2,739 bitcoins (the equivalent of $1.6m).
