The Future of Blockchain Technology
Blockchain technology was used predominantly for cryptocurrencies. Now, the demand for blockchain technology and blockchain talents are growing due to the various practical use cases. The reliability of users on financial institutions has increased to complete their day-to-day electronic transaction has created a massive user demand within the blockchain industry. As of today, blockchain is one of the fastest growing subsectors of the FinTech industry.
It is expected that by end of 2024, companies will spend $20 billion a year on blockchain technical services. Some benefits of blockchain are the increased transparency, accurate tracking, permanent ledger, cost reduction and more. The immense effect and potential of blockchain can be witnessed globally with more than 20 countries experimenting and adopting the concept of a national cryptocurrency.
However, with the benefits and potential that the blockchain technology holds comes with the potential drawbacks like its complexity nature, regulatory implications, implementation challenges, etc. There has also been a rise in blockchain hacks with an estimated of $2 billion worth cryptocurrency stolen since 2017.
