Blockchain and cryptocurrencies have revolutionised the industry we know today and certainly other industries too. Cryptocurrencies can be defined as a digital asset that is arranged to be carried out as a medium of exchange. This medium utilises the power of cryptography for controlling the production of additional units, encrypting financial transactions and making sure that the transfer of goods is confirmed and running accurately.

“Cryptocurrency” was invented by a pseudonymous developer known as Satoshi Nakamoto and we don’t actually know who that really is till this date.

I mean, that’s just the name we’ve been given so we still refer to Satoshi Nakamoto as an unknown person or group of people who developed Bitcoin, authored the Bitcoin white paper, and created and deployed bitcoin’s original reference implementation, which is a pretty big deal, but they don’t want the limelight.

Whoever it was has succeeded in doing something revolutionary for this world. Blockchain, on the other hand, is where the records of transactions made in Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency are maintained. This can be done across several computers that are connected to each other via the peer-to-peer network. Cryptocurrencies have gained massive popularity in the past few years and has taken over the world. Many celebrities have started adopting this method of payment rather than the fiat system and we can see why.

So, what can we expect next?

There are many predictions that are related to cryptocurrencies and after all it is a volatile market so we can’t confirm exactly what the digital asset system is going to do. Creating a catharsis will highly benefit the industry (the cleaning up of scams), it will help add more value to the projects of crypto this year.

It is human instinct to want to prevent losses so this intervention is necessary. This is the reason why the future of blockchain gives the future of Ripple a lot of hope; there are always talks of big money spenders on blockchain technology and now with blockchain being used across different industries, the technology is only going to improve with thee increase of mainstream popularity. According to reports recently, there are numerous customers who have spent large sums of money on the initiatives of blockchain, which should mean that the industry of blockchain will continue to grow.

The market is maturing and continuing to grow, there are many hashing power services that will be freed up from rental services including nicehash. Many companies have started developing techniques and trends for cloud mining with natural resources too showing the scope to use such technology in better ways that do not damage the environment. There are numerous companies who are planning on using natural resources to offer customers who want to mine but can’t do so as the mining process can become very expensive. This is due to the fact that electricity bills are sky-rocketing and this can become a hurdle in the way of individuals who are cloud miners. We can say that cloud mining with natural resources is going to become the next big thing, as and when that really takes off is the next question.

In summary, we can say that blockchain and cryptocurrency are both an important part of the digital assets and exchange industry. There are many businesses and individuals who are now associated with the use of these methods instead of the fiat system. It is safe to say that cryptocurrency and Blockchain are going to expand the industry, even more this year.
