Trending Technologies - Blockchain
Blockchain is the world’s leading software platform for digital assets: Blockchain technology is like the internet in that it has a built-in robustness. By storing blocks of information that are identical across its network, the block chain cannot be controlled by any single entity, and has no single point of failure.
At its most basic, blockchain is a vast, global distributed ledger or database running on millions of devices and open to anyone, where not just information but anything of value – money, titles, deeds, music, art, scientific discoveries, intellectual property, and even votes – can be moved and stored securely and privately. On the blockchain, trust is established, not by powerful intermediaries like banks, governments and technology companies, but through mass collaboration and clever code. Blockchains ensure integrity and trust between strangers; they make it difficult to cheat.
Blockchains are changing fundamentally the financial services industry – by dropping the cost and complexity of financial transactions, making the world’s unbanked a viable new market, and improving transparency and regulation.
