Blockchain Helps Businesses To Bloom
Why should your business take note of blockchain tech, if it hasn't already? It is the way of the future.
By now, most people even outside the IT industry have heard something about the tech, but, is is it worth investing in an application for your firm? What real benefits could this new way of doing things have for you?
Why don't we analyze those potential benefits quickly?
Cost Effective And Time Saving
One of the primary reason the technology has taken off as it has is that it requires no third party interference for processing transactions.
That is one less third party to have to pay to complete your transactions. The cost of transacting is lower because infrastructural costs are born by all the members of the network, and there are lower transaction fees.
Time is saved on the transactions because it is a trustless system. In other words, there is no need to physically check whether or not the person who is initiating the transaction is authorized to or not. Verification methods are built into the system.
The security here runs rings around anything that we currently have. The data that has been added to the chain can never be deleted or altered. According to BitFortune.net, many businesses including banks and U.S. defense services are adopting blockchain technology because of the superior security it provides in this exact manner. To permanently delete or change the chain, you would have to do so on every single computer that it has been downloaded to.
It is a tough task for a hacker to accomplish. A denial of service attack is also next to impossible because the network is spread over so many different computers.
There are numerous potential advantages to businesses, including fraud prevention, better data storage, and smarter ways of operating. To go in depth into all of these is beyond the scope of this post, but you can read more about in the infographic below.
Maybe a lot of your business depends on clients trusting that you have sourced your supplies where you said that you did. Would it not be great if they could see for themselves? Blockchain ledgers are immutable, and so a company can be completely transparent with some processes.
