The Blockchain is undeniably a disruptive invention. A decade ago, no one had a clue that digital currency could do so well and that Financial Technology would be such a game changer. Just like Netflix disrupted the film industry, in the financial industry Blockchain is one to watch.
But first things first.
What Is Blockchain?
Despite being an ingenious invention, people still don't know what Blockchain is and how it applies to their lives. To some, it is something to do with cryptocurrency, a concept that they find foreign and difficult to understand. But Blockchain is not as complex as it seems. It is one of the disruptions in the financial sector that will change the course of business over the next few decades. Some people call it the “digital gold” while to others it’s like the new internet.
The Blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of financial transactions that can be programmed to record and update valuable transactions or activities.
How Does Blockchain Work?
Blockchain works by continually updating and reconciling information held in a database. The invention is so disruptive that it has cryptocurrency skeptics talking about these new digital assets network. Virtual currency investors are now embracing this technology as it is anticipated to revolutionize the financial sector in years to come.
