Blockchain goes beyond the technology of bitcoin, Ethereum, Steem and other related cryptocurrencies. Blockchain however determine the cause of an event of every individual due to the fact the it has been integrated into many sectors of life. And some of these sectors are what everyone in the modern word relate with in almost all our day-to-day activities.

As will know that Blockchain technology is the system whereby informations are stored in a way that makes it difficult or better still impossible to be changed, hack or cheat the system made possible by the operating with some mechanisms such as immutability and concensus and others. These features ensures that the data stored are authentic and irreplaceable.

The smooth operation of Blockchain technology using some unique features as so far change the everyday life for everyone regarding digital world. The technology is gaining more wide adoption every single day.

✓ So many sectors are being built on Blockchain technology for collection, storage as well as retrieving of informations and data such as education system, Hospital and military sector.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES IN ADOPTING THE USE OF BLOCKCHAIN IN EVERYDAY LIFE?.

ADVANTAGES

✅ DECENTRALIZATION: This however, the undisputed main features of blockchain technology. The decentralized nature played an important role in the wide acceptance of the blockchain concept. This is an instance where an individual have total control and can independently make decision in authenticating transaction without the authorization of a third party.

This is huge advantage to the public as Blockchain completely eliminate the role intermediary plays in decision making concerning transactions.

TRANSPARENCY: Blockchain operates in a way that it is open to the general public, transactions made are open to everyone to see. This however drives positive values among it users in adoption of the blockchain technology concept.

NETWORK DISTRIBUTION: The decentralized nnature of blockchain technology has the ability to accommodate lots of users at the same time and allows dispensation of the same services without any practical failure on the network. Different users will always have access to multiple copies of the same information.

SAVES COST: For the fact that blockchain is decentralized in nature, this allows for the validation of person-to-person transactions faster and secure. Eliminating the authorization of intermediary. The adoption of Blockchain benefits users as there's reduction in cost of transaction.

DISADVANTAGES

📌High cost of implementation: The cost of operation is low for users compare to organizations and big companies. Any firm or organization that wish to operate using blockchain will have to spend a lot of money for maintenance and sustainable network which some company can not afford to spend that much. This however has been one of the factors affecting the reduce in adoption of blockchain technology.
📌unemployment: The implementation of Blockchain has indirectly discard the need for hiring a personnel to work in some sectors. for example the job required for a intermediary is no longer needed as blockchain technology is decentralized and does not need the service of an intermediary to authenticate transactions.

📌Lost of keys: For without key there is no way to operate an account. This however scares some big organizations and companies in adopting blockchain because it is still bearable for an individual to lost private keys than for a big organizations because of the worth of assets that would be lost the loss will be unbearable because there is no way to recover the account.

The future looks very promising and bright for blockchain. Blockchain has immensely contributed to the growth of financial and economic sector of the world at large.

Apart from crytocurencies features of Blockchain, it can also be implemented in some other applications like healthcare, voting, music, welfare benefits, artist royalties and gambling.

Let's take a look at how blockchain will present its adoption benefits and usefulness in the near future through following sectors.

Global Recognition And Acceptance
Gaining global recognition and acceptance has been one of the major priority of blockchain, this looks promising to achieve, as in no time governments worldwide might incorporate blockchain technology to conduct many operations, from voting to communication and payment systems. The profitable technology is gradually or let me say drastically gaining the attention of big tech companies. Big investors are investing in cryptocurrencies network because of its profitable features. Countries such as Australia are making step to incorporate blockchain technology for local voting system. UK is thinking of incorporating blockchain technology to monitor and track welfare distribution.

FINANCE SECTOR

Finance aspect is yet to experience the best version of blockchain technology as better and faster experience are being predicted in the future while it keeps revised, reviewed and improving every day. Let's look at the following example of how blockchain will impact the world in the near future in financial sector.

International Business Machine Blockchain World Wire (IBM): To make cross-borders transaction, series of intermediaries is required for both clearing and settlement. In which this process delays transaction. IBM’s Blockchain World Wire is predicted to enables conduit use the Stellar protocol which allows banks to clear and settle cross-borders payments almost immediately and effectively.

AZA Finance: This is one of many innovations in which blockchain has introduced. Aza finance is built on blockchain technology where small business can send and collect payments to and from Africa. This is done by converting fiat currencies into stablecoins rather than U.S dollars when trading. AZA therefore enables that it can reduce the reliance on dollar dominant system. Now trade efficiency will increase.

These are some of the fascinating benefits and impact of adoption of blockchain as regards to financial sector now let's move on to another.

Most demand technology

Blockchain has proven that it will be the most in-demand technology in the near future because of its uniqueness, irreplaceable and immutable features and security level. As blockchain technology gets revised, reviewed it gets adapted to solving and handles more complex problem. Job opportunities are being created as it calling for more experienced developer to improve its effectiveness.

What is your opinion about the implementation of blockchains in the health sector? Has the implementation been positive or negative? Explain a use case

ken.jpeg

Health Innovations using blockchain technology will cause a notable improvement in health sector. Some of the issues currently facing the sector like low security nature of patient's data, management of medical products and equipment's supply chain, payment of medical personnel salaries and so on will be improved.

Other applications are as follow:

📌Protection of healthcare data: Implementation of blockchain technology will ensure that patients data and informations are stored in a very secured and unauthorized to a third party for access. Digital data of patients will be accessible only by hospitals and healthcare administrators

📌MedicalChain– This like a chain format created for user centric-digital health record which can be shared to doctors easily. All information is securely stored in audit format and it is transparent.

CONCLUSION

Blockchain has slash the cost of transactions and reshape the economy in many ways.
blockchain has brought about so many development and shift of power from our centralized government body and big organizations. Blockchain innovation has improve the way datas are safely stored. The future of blockchain is very promising and will soon be implemented in almost all sectors of life .

You got me wondering with your statement about blockchain and communication. Will blockchain replace that red telephone on the the president's desk? (•ิ‿•ิ)
You did well in answering on all the expected points.
Good luck for the contest!

Yes I said that because, instead of having to go through series of physical meetings between business partners and all that before agreeing on a deal. Blockchain has come to bridge the gap of delay in transactions due to distance or language barrier. Therefore it aids faster and better communication between business partners.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comment

Great explanation. The red telephone can now be packed away 😊

I too believe that the block chain is slowly changing our lives, it is also completely transforming social networks. Steemit is absolutely proof that the social networks of the future will all be blockchain-based. I no longer find a reason to continue using the old decentralized social networks

That's is very true sir
I'm glad to be one of the participants of Steemit social network...

Thanks for the lovely reply

Blockchain technology is very good as it had affected many lives in the years of its existence. With all the advantages it presents, it still has some draw backs which militates against its adoption and implementation in many countries and organizations.

One of which is the high cost of building a blockchain project for each sector where its use is required in a country.

You have presented a very knowledgeable content on this one. I wish you all the best.

You're right sir

Thanks for stopping by

You are welcome 👍

Blockchain is interesting. My problem is that it's highly unregulated, which is one of its beauty, but also a problem. In a regulated world, Medicalchain could have been perfected as a go-to for all medical related activities over the Blockchain, but this is not the case. A new standard will soon be developed and as multiple standards are being developed it becomes hard to enjoy the unity the Blockchain promises to provide.

Hello friend,
Greetings.

I like the fact that you explained in an easy and clear terms. You must be a good teacher.

One disadvantages of Blockchain is the high consumption of energy as alot of them makes use of the proof of work… but in recent times we have seen some blockchain technology that has implemented the proof of stake which has helped to reduce the energy consumption level. Blockchain has and will continue to impact lives, all we need to do is exercise patience, and expect review and modifications on some of the disadvantages of Blockchain. Kudos!

Nice post you have here friend, Blockchain technology is revolutionizing the way we store data in many sectors.
Thanks for sharing bro and Good luck in the contest.

Yes due to its high quality features many fields are now implemented blockchain technology in it thats a very good thing for the future of blockchain. Yes blockchain also solve the issue of transperancy. Because now we can see all the details of a specific thing with the help of blockchain technology. Yes lost of keys is an issue but I think i will be solve in the future. Thanks for sharing with me and other steemians about blockchain.

Hope for your visit on my post.

Greetings 🇵🇰

well said brother.

Thanks for the beautiful comment

Hello friend, you have chosen your words well.. You explanations is clear.

Nice publication

As much as blockchain is advantageous, the ussue if regulation is a big blow to the project, imagine the value of steem if blockchain doesnt deal with regulation problem is most countries, the use of blockchain illegally is something else, state fund national funds are now been transferred through blockchain networks, i know where there is good you should also expect the bad.

Although Blockchain is also an advancement in our lives as it solve many problems in different sectors like the incorporation of the health sector in the blockchain network

you have written well my dear brother coupled with so many point about blockchain that i agree with.

Greetings and blessings

Finance aspect is yet to experience the best version of blockchain technology as better and faster experience are being predicted in the future while it keeps revised, reviewed and improving every day.

He said something important and I also think that people will enjoy the benefits of blockchain technology and everyone will accept it. Blockchain technology is becoming very popular day by day. Because with the help of blockchain it is possible to do a lot of difficult work very easily. Have a very nice discussion, your entry was much better.

Gaining global recognition and acceptance has been one of the major priority of blockchain

Blockchain technology is growing very rapidly so therefore I has now gained so many users and wallet connected to it, infact some countries have adopted the use of Blockchain technology like Cryptocurrencies in to their governance.

This is really good news especially to us old users because if it grows into a bigger hight then we all would also be in a greater height.

Thanks for sharing such

wishing you success

Blockchain goes beyond the technology of bitcoin, Ethereum, Steem and other related cryptocurrencies.

Yes , this is an important fact to state. Because of the popularity btc have to blockchain, a lot of people think that it was the start of blockchain.

Different users will always have access to multiple copies of the same information.

Yes, I think this pint emphasises it’s decentralisation feature.

For the fact that blockchain is decentralized in nature, this allows for the validation of person-to-person transactions faster and secure

Certainly the elimination of intermediates or middle men has cut down on the transaction fee so much that sometimes we don’t even see the deduction when we make a transaction.
