Almost everyone in IT has heard the term Blockchain used in conjunction with Bitcoin excitement. A Blockchain is what underpins and makes bitcoin possible. A Blockchain application allows a transaction among multiple parties to take place transparently and the transaction is immutable. Everyone who needs to know, knows it, immediately.
Blockchain apps are being tested and assessed by every major bank and leading companies in numerous industries including healthcare, logistics, insurance, software and energy. Early stage applications are being developed and organizations are beginning to understand what this technology will be able to do and how to apply it. Blockchain will be a very important tool, in 10 years every company will have a Blockchain application.
