Blockchain’s initial impact has been most keenly felt in the world of finance. However, the increased level of trust provided by the distributed encrypted databases that blockchain technology provides can benefit many other areas of industry and society. One example is in the Internet of Things in which the integrity and lifetime of a product can be irrefutaby monitored in a blockchain based database, ensuring ownership as well as warranty conditions. The security this provides will be an important enabler for the connected enterprise in order to ensure trust between customers and vendors who may be geographically located on other sides of the planet and yet wish to do business.
