What is Blockchain Technology?

How does the Blockchain Work?

Some important transaction steps that explain how does blockchain works:

Uses of blockchain:

  • Transfer of Funds: Faster and economical money transactions, especially cross-border transactions.
  • Financial Exchanges: A decentralized exchange does not force investors to deposit their assets with centralized authority, thus, they have more control and security. While cryptocurrency is the primary focus of blockchain-based exchanges, the concept might be extended to more traditional investments as well.
  • Lending: Faster and cheaper loan processing with better rates due to smart contracts built on blockchains. With the help of blockchain, we can see the future of peer-to-peer lending, as well as faster and more secure loan processes in general, and even complicated programmed loans that mimic syndicated loan structures or mortgages.
  • Raising funds: Companies that use blockchain technology can speed up the process of funding by acquiring capital in a variety of methods instead of cash. Initial Exchange Offerings (IEOs), Equity Token Offerings (ETOs), and Security Token Offerings (STOs) are all examples of uses of blockchain in funding. Because of its legal protection, STO has been the most preferred alternative.
  • Trade finance: By digitizing and removing the time-consuming manual method, blockchain can help to streamline the trading process of all financial activities connected to international trade and commerce.
