This technology is believed to have potential in many applications, from healthcare, energy management and the Internet of Things (IoT) to digital governance. However, blockchain technology is expected to significantly impact the financial service industry and change the way institutions such as banks, and insurance companies operate.

Blockchain technology (also known as distributed ledger technology) is a shared, incorruptible digital ledger that maintains a record of transactions occurring across a peer-to-peer network, either public or private. The technology records transactions in blocks in chronological order, storing this information at various places. These blocks cannot be modified but only appended. Hence, blockchain provides a secure and reliable way to record transactions without any trusted intermediary. This allows the technology to be used in many peer-to-peer applications even when participants may not know or trust each other.

The data records stored in these nodes are consistent with the data stored on all other network nodes. Further, these records cannot be modified, making tampering with the data next to impossible. These applications include payments and money transfers, securities trading, energy trading and real estate transactions.

The following are 4 Blockchain companies to keep an eye on in 2022:
