Impact of blockchain on the world

Introduction

I’ve been hearing about blockchain for a while now and am unsure what to make of it. Everyone seems to have an opinion—even my Auntie Puss, who’s always so predictable. But I’m ready to put on my thinking cap because there’s some serious money at stake: the total value of all cryptos increased by 1 billion dollars in the last week alone! So let’s get straight down to it: What is blockchain? And how does it impact our lives?

Power to the people

The blockchain is a revolution in technology and democracy. It can help people to take control of their data, vote, and have their votes counted. Blockchain will also secure financial transactions less risk than traditional systems like banks or credit cards.

Enhanced security

As the latest technology to hit the scene, blockchain has already proven to be an effective way to secure data. The decentralized nature of blockchain makes it more secure than traditional databases and ledgers.

For example, when you send your bank account information to them, they store it in their database on their servers and make sure that no one else can access it except themselves. But with blockchain technology, all transactions are recorded on thousands of computers worldwide at once—no one person or entity controls all information; instead, everyone has access to all records because they’re stored on multiple computer systems scattered throughout a networked infrastructure (the internet). This means there’s no single point where hackers could potentially attack data like this—in other words: “good luck trying.”

No censorship

One of the most important aspects of blockchain is that it has no central authority to censor. This means there’s no way for any person or group to control what you see, hear or do on the platform. The only way for them to do this would be by shutting down all other users who disagree with them and blocking their access (which would be wrong).

The second reason why censorship isn’t a problem with blockchain is that there are so many different types of information stored within each block, which means that even if someone wanted to delete some information from one block for another piece of content from elsewhere on the network still exists within another block somewhere else on their personal computer (or mobile device) then they could still find themselves locked out due to having too much power over others’ rights being compromised when trying.

New ways to vote

Blockchain can also be used to create a secure, transparent voting system. No one can tamper with the results or conduct fraudulent votes. Everyone can see how many votes were cast for each candidate and when and by whom they were cast.

Blockchain allows people to vote from home on their smartphones or tablet computers (or even laptops!). This is called “remote voting” and has already been implemented in some countries but not yet here in America!

More equitable exchanges

The internet has made it easier for people to buy and sell goods and services. But what if you could use the blockchain?

Blockchain technology can be used with the internet to allow people worldwide to exchange goods and services without an intermediary. Using cryptography, every transaction is stored on a secure ledger, meaning no one else can change it or add fraudulent information. This makes it possible for anyone with basic computer skills and internet access to participate in this new economy. There are already thousands of people who have built businesses based on their ability and willingness to provide these services through blockchain technology:

Better protection for personal data

If you’re worried about your data being stolen, blockchain technology can help. The idea behind it is simple: instead of storing all your information on one computer, as a centralized cloud service now, it stores it across many computers in different locations worldwide. This means that if someone wants access to your files—or worse yet, wants to sell them—they’ll have trouble accessing everything at once because they’d need permission from everyone who owns part of that data set (in this case you).

This also means that no single entity has complete control over who gets access to what information; instead, many individuals have powers over their part of the network. And since each user has an equal say in how their device should be used by others within the said network (think Bitcoin), this makes sense: if someone doesn’t want his private key out there for all to see, then he can keep it closed!

Counterfeiting and fraud protection

The blockchain can track the origin of goods, digital content, and ideas. For example, you could use a blockchain to ensure that an item is genuine before you buy it. Or if someone steals your phone while using it at a café or restaurant, they might be tracked down through the blockchain by using your phone number as an identifier.

Blockchain technology also makes it easier for businesses to detect frauds in their supply chain processes—for example, by verifying data about who made what, when, and where—and therefore stop counterfeiting more quickly than ever before.*

Blockchain is a complex technology best applied in specific circumstances.

Blockchain is a complicated technology with many uses, but it’s not a panacea. It’s still young and evolving, so we must understand how it works before applying it practically.

Conclusion

We’ve covered a lot of ground here—and it can be easy to get overwhelmed. But the takeaway should be clear: Blockchain is not a panacea. It’s not ready for prime time, and even if it were, there are still plenty of ways in which we could usefully improve upon its current state. Still, the potential benefits are genuine and worth considering how they might affect our lives as consumers or citizens.
