Brief description:


Blockchain technology has expanded the possibility of information sharing and distribution at a greater scale, by allowing different connected entities, being either human or machines to share information effectively. It enables seamless connectivity and data transparency, as to increase visibility, control, and business process automation. Transactions occurring within the blockchain environment are also secure and trusted. The existence of Internet-of-Things (IoT) and adaptation to cloud computing environment made it possible for organizations to further utilize the blockchain technology for effective data distribution and collaboration with human-machine environment.
