How is blockchain transforming our society and economy

blockchain
blockchain

Transformation with blockchain has enabled new and state of the art technologies to reform the way we exchange value.

Blockchain is considered as second generation of Internet and was introduced with the aim to ease and secure transactional processes. Although a relatively new technology, blockchain is booming. In 2017 the global market for blockchain technology is forecasted to become as big as 339.5 million U.S. dollars in size and is predicted to grow to 2.3 billion U.S. dollars by 2021. It has experienced too much success with several applications, the biggest example being the universal cryptocurrency Bitcoin. Transformation in blockchain has brought this technology much beyond bitcoin and is estimated to change various market and industrial processes by providing evolution of individual and business transaction.

What is blockchain?

A Blockchain is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography. Each block typically contains a hash pointer as a link to a previous block a timestamp and transaction data.

However, the technology requires a far more descriptive explanation. It is an open and public online database or medium that is used for the record and exchange of value-based transactions. It transcends all physical and geographical barriers and uses math and cryptography to enable transactions globally. The uniqueness of blockchain lies in its capacity to store and retain person-to-person transactional history, so that chances of fraud, hacking, and third-party interference are eliminated. These transactions are stored in blocks that cannot be altered. Each consequent transactional block creates a hash pointer and a timestamp in a chronological order, which makes blockchain a reliable and secure platform.

Blockchain Transformation

How does blockchain work?

A network of nodes administrates the functioning of Blockchain. This network facilitates transactions between an entire market of individual buyers or sellers and stores it into a group of blocks on each personal computer. This block of value is then broadcasted amongst every party on the network and if accepted, it is added to an existing chain of blocks. Once the transaction is complete, it ensures decentralization and distribution of these transactions so that no single person is in charge. This way it maintains its anonymity as well its transparency. These transactions can involve goods, money, or property. However, the future of Blockchain will witness an increase in its use through the formulation of new and widespread applications.

How is transformation with blockchain enabled?

The most transformative feature of blockchain is its transparency. Since it does not require the interference of banks or governmental institutions as a third-party intermediary, it reduces the chances of manipulation and instances of theft, fraud, and hacking. Each time a transaction occurs, it is recorded in a safe and secure manner. Blockchain is estimated to bring a certain level of security and synchronization in the financial arena. No wonder we are seeing the development of several fintech companies and start-ups. Even automotive, telecom, and healthcare industries are preparing to make upfront investments in blockchain in the near future. Countries like Japan and the US are embracive of this technology, as corporations in these countries are leveraging blockchain in digital identity and content storage, network infrastructure, smart contracts, real estate, app development, and IoT. For the members of the society, the promise of reduced transactional expenditure, secure data ownership, and the elimination of fraudulence should be enough of a convincer. Although a relatively new technology, blockchain has proved its mettle and is now seeing the enthusiasm of investors that are willing to experiment with current and potential uses of the blockchain.

Like every other technology, blockchain too has its limitations and challenges. However, when it comes to dabbling in the experimentation and implementation of blockchain, it depends on how organizations and governments embrace blockchain. Depending on its deployment, the technology can either be disruptive or transformative.

iPhone 8 or iPhone X – Apple’s 10th Anniversary Release

iphone 8 touch

2017 will mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and Apple has something major planned to celebrate the occasion. We’ve got several months to go until the launch of the iPhone 8 or iPhone X, but because of Apple’s ambitious plans for the device, there are already an abundance of rumors hinting at the impressive features coming in the 2017 iPhone.

The 10th anniversary iPhone will be shaping up to be a big update. Predictions so far include a glass and stainless steel redesign with a bezel-less OLED display, a new in-display Touch ID paired with facial recognition, updates to 3D Touch, improved waterproofing, wireless charging, and more.

Multiple rumours have suggested there will be three versions of the iPhone: a “premium” OLED model and two standard LCD devices, with sizes that may include 4.7, 5 (OLED), and 5.5 inches.

Rumours suggest it’s going to be a radical redesign, with an edge-to-edge display that does away with the top and bottom bezels where features like the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and the front-facing camera are housed. Instead, Touch ID and the camera may be built directly into the display, meaning there will be no Home button.

Like the iPhone 7, the iPhone 8 is expected to be water resistant, but it may have an improved IP68 water resistance rating. It will continue to be able to hold up to rain, splashes, and brief submersion in water.

Inside, the iPhone 8 is expected to have a 10-nanometer A11 chip that will be both faster and more efficient, plus rumours suggest it could also include features like wireless charging and biometric additions like iris, facial, or gesture recognition. In higher-end models with a dual-lens camera, both lenses are expected to feature optical image stabilisation

We’ll update as more rumours and stories surface during the long lead up to the launch. This story was last updated February 15, 2017.
