Blockchain Technology

A Promising New Technology

Came into prominence with a distributed ledger technology for bitcoins. It is safe, auditable and
resistant to outages. Blockchain makes things transparent democratic decentralized efficient and secure.
There are institutions and industries ripe for disruption by blockchain due to path breaking aspects like:
● Security
● Audit Trail
● Transparency
● Trust
● Transaction Efficiency
● Collaboration
● Decentralization

Offering Development Platforms
Here, We don’t start with a preference for a blockchain. Rather, we start with a development approach
orientation, and we build an app that backs into a blockchain infrastructure that could be served in the cloud.
The goal here is rapid development, and we focus on the blockchain programmability. Some choices:
BlockApps, Blockstream, Eris

Offering Vertical Solutions
This segment is where we have seen the most rapid metamorphosis in the past year, mostly in financial
services. These solutions are industry-specific, and they are based on private blockchain or ledger
infrastructures. A caveat here is that some of these are not full blockchains. Rather, they are distributed
ledgers, which are a subset of blockchain capabilities. And some don’t even include a consensus element,
which takes the implementation another level down from distributed ledger tech.
