Blockchain is a digital ‘ledger’ or collection of transactions that are duplicated and distributed across a network of computer systems, making them difficult or even impossible to hack or alter. Its features make the technology ideal for data validation, access, and identity protection. There are many companies, even several major publicly listed ones, which use the technology and others that are heavily invested in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin which are built on the Blockchain.

According to Statista, globally, corporations have begun to adopt private blockchain for internal purposes such as record keeping and intra-company transactions, and even public blockchain like Bitcoins in their payment processes.

Data from Statista’s Research Department have forecasted that spending on blockchain solutions could reach almost $19 billion by 2024— an increase of over 322%.
