Blockchain technology, which first found burst into mainstream as a secure platform for cryptocurrency, is today being extended to transform industry sectors on a holistic ecosystem basis. Healthcare, banking and insurance are just three industries where blockchain technology has found wide acceptance because the technology provides transparency and accountability, which makes them particularly suitable for recording and managing ledgers.
Because it is secure by design, blockchain technology is expected to impact several sectors including healthcare, real estate, legal industry, security, government, education and, charities and aid organisations.
For example, many donors who contribute to the various causes in the charities sector worry if their donation reach their intended beneficiaries. Blockchain technology allow charities to create trust through smart contracts and online reputation management systems which can help donors trust that their money is going to the specified cause.
But besides disrupting industries, can blockchain technology create social impact? How can blockchain create change – what are the factors contributing to its adoption, what are the risks involved and what is the potential in this area for changemakers and the underserved population?
