Blockchain-ConceptMany have predicted that blockchain technology will disrupt traditional commerce across the globe. From global financial and supply chain systems to national healthcare and insurance industries and on to selling renewable energy from one’s roof to their neighbors, this new technology creates a digital, reliable source of truth.
