Blockchain technology offers the promise of digital truth. When properly implemented, it provides a transparent, permanent, immutable record-keeping system. The possibilities are endless, from managing the logistics of supply chain networks to facilitating international commerce. Organizations are increasingly adopting blockchain to improve their existing operations through its ledger capabilities, maintain real estate ownership records or execute smart contracts. Cryptocurrency, an example of blockchain technology, has exploded in the last few years. Despite the growing popularity and potential of these technologies, the average professional doesn’t fully grasp their capabilities, risks and impacts. Gain a detailed look at blockchain and cryptocurrency so you can understand its inner workings and uncover opportunities for using it.
