10 Ways Blockchain is Changing the World for the Better

Let's look at the 10 ways blockchain is changing the world for the better of popular applications.

Many technologies, including artificial intelligencemachine learning, augmented reality/virtual reality, and blockchain technology, have grown in prominence in recent years. For several reasons, startups and large enterprises such as banks and insurance firms deploy the technology. 

1. Cryptocurrencies: This is the most well-known application of blockchain technology. Initially, the uses of cryptocurrency were mainly centered on payments. Parties can do business without the involvement of a bank. For example, a person in the United States can send bitcoins to someone in India without using a bank.  

2. Advertising: Now, Google and Facebook control nearly all digital advertising traffic. Google  and Facebook, in this case, are effectively middlemen who dominate the advertising environment. Using a decentralized system, blockchain allows producers and consumers to communicate directly.

3. Real Estate: In the Real Estate market, like in advertising, there are intermediaries in the shape of brokers who frequently demand extravagant fees for connecting buyers and sellers. These intermediaries may be eliminated with blockchain technology. Instead of depending on centralized advertising/listing portals, a blockchain may be employed where producers can give their ads/listings, and consumers can see them directly without intermediaries.

4. Supply Chains: Several actions must be taken before an overseas delivery may be made. For example, it may pass via the courier service provider (such as DHL), customs in the sending nation, customs in the receiving country, and the local courier service provider in the receiving country. The most challenging problem in this supply chain is tracking the shipment's status.

5. Insurance: Insurance firms can use blockchains to manage data from persons who have submitted false insurance claims. This allows them to verify the applicant's identity when issuing the insurance claim.The most excellent thing about this method is that no insurance company is responsible for keeping this data.

6. Credit Ratings: The data is dispersed throughout the firms, which fosters a high level of trust. The same concept may be used in banking, where banks are working on developing a database of defaulters, as it is in the insurance business. Credit rating agencies now provide this function. Banks are attempting to remove credit rating agencies by utilizing blockchain, allowing them to securely exchange defaulter data.

7. Healthcare: Patients' health records can be safely saved on a blockchain so that when the patient sees another doctor, he or she can exchange those records directly with the new doctor. The nicest aspect of adopting blockchain in this situation is that there is no requirement for a centralized gateway to keep these documents.

8. Voting: Voting difficulties continue to be a source of worry in this day and age. While computerized tools have helped to simplify the entire process, it still needs improvement. A blockchain-based voting system eliminates fraud while being totally transparent. Several platforms are working on this answer, and the entire voting system may catch on once it is finalized.

9. Digital IDs: The blockchain's immutable ledger provides a tamper-proof record of an individual's paperwork, accessible only upon request by authorized entities. Having secure and private access to digital identification is crucial in an increasingly digital environment. Even Microsoft is jumping on board, and digital identities will be a crucial talking topic in the future decade in terms of blockchain technology.

10. Gaming: The video game industry quickly adopts blockchain technology, especially non-fungible tokens (NFTs). In-game economies and unique objects are often used in games, and NFTs provide a mechanism to enable that economy while ensuring that players' stuff is accessible between games. The video game industry is worth billions of dollars, so there is plenty of space for technology to flourish.
