  1. We have covered the basics of blockchain technology in our previous article. Now, it’s time to delve deep and understand which industries are poised for disruption with the use of this technology

    1-Banking
    A popular opinion is that the blockchain will do to banking what the internet did to media. Financial services will come within reach for billions of people around the world, including the ones in third world countries who largely depend on unofficial systems. Bitcoin allows anyone to send money across borders almost instantly and with relatively low fees. Many banks like Barclays are also working on adopting blockchain technology to make their business operations faster, more efficient and secure. Banks are also increasingly investing in blockchain startups and projects.

    2. Insurance

    The global insurance market is based on trust management. The blockchain is a new way of managing trust and can be used to verify many types of data in insurance contracts, such as the insured person’s identity. This technology is very useful for any type of insurance that relies on real-world data, for example agriculture insurance.

    3. Cloud Storage

    Data on a centralized server is inherently vulnerable to hacking, data loss, or human error. Using blockchain technology allows cloud storage to be more secure and robust against attacks. Storj is one example of a cloud storage network using the technology.

    4. Democracy

    Probably one of the most important areas of society that the blockchain will disrupt is voting. Blockchain technology can be used for voter registration and identity verification, and electronic vote counting to ensure that only legitimate votes are counted, and no votes are changed or removed. Creating an immutable, publicly-viewable ledger of recorded votes would be a massive step toward making elections more fair and democratic.

    5. Government Services

    Government systems are often slow, opaque, and prone to corruption. Implementing blockchain-based systems can significantly reduce bureaucracy and increase security, efficiency and transparency of government operations. For example, Dubai is aiming to put all of its government documents on the blockchain by 2020.

    6. Public Benefits

    The public benefits system is another sector that suffers from slowness and bureaucracy. Blockchain technology can help assess, verify and distribute welfare or unemployment benefits in a much more streamlined and secure way. GovCoin is a UK-based company that is helping the government to distribute public benefits using blockchain technology.

    7. Healthcare

    Another industry that relies on many legacy systems and is ripe for disruption is healthcare. One of the challenges hospitals face is the lack of a secure platform to store and share data, and they are often victims of hacking because of outdated infrastructure. Blockchain technology can allow hospitals to safely store data like medical records and share it with authorized professionals or patients. This can improve data security and can even help with accuracy and speed of diagnosis.

    8. Energy Management

    Energy management has been a highly centralized industry for a long time. Energy producers and users cannot buy it directly from each other and have to go through the public grid or a trusted private intermediary. Transactive Grid is a startup using Ethereum that allows customers to buy and sell energy from each other in a peer-to-peer way.

    9. Real Estate

    Some of the issues in buying and selling real estate are bureaucracy, lack of transparency, fraud, and mistakes in public records. Using blockchain technology can speed up transactions by reducing the need for paper- based record keeping. It can also help with tracking, verifying ownership, ensuring accuracy of documents and transferring property deeds. Ubitquity is a blockchain-secured platform for real estate record-keeping that is an alternative for legacy paper based systems.

    10. Supply Chain Management

    With blockchain technology, transactions can be documented in a permanent decentralized record and monitored securely and
    transparently. This can greatly reduce time delays and human mistakes. It can also be used to monitor costs, labour and even waste and emissions at every point of the supply chain. This has serious implications for understanding and controlling the real environmental impact of products. The distributed ledger can also be used to verify the authenticity or fair trade status of products by tracking them from their origin.

    In conclusion, there are quite a few opportunities in Blockchain technology and its infinite potential for improving the quality of service, confidentiality and integrity of data at the same time.
