The origin of Blockchain can be traced back to the 90’s, ancient for the world of IT, but the technology only recently gained traction due to the success of Bitcoin. However, a few unique advantages of blockchain make it perfectly suitable for use outside of the crypto- world. In this article, DSR answers the questions: Why is blockchain is so popular nowadays? Which industries are already being impacted by blockchain? Where are we headed with blockchain in the future?
