7 Real-Life Blockchain Use Cases

Blockchain technology is still new to many people around the world. In fact, many people cannot think of any other viable technology deployments and use cases outside of cryptocurrencies. If you fall into this category, it’s not a big deal, because for most of its existence, the resonance and noise surrounding the technology has been centered on Bitcoin, Ethereum, NFTs, and more recently the metaverse.

At the heart of all these use cases are cryptocurrencies. Always about how the coin or project token will facilitate exchanges and transactions within the ecosystem.

However, blockchain technology goes far beyond cryptocurrencies. The technology itself provides a means of permanently storing data, the information contained within it can neither be manipulated nor deleted. As a result, the technology has found examples in several industries around the world. Blockchain Development Company,

finance

It’s more of a given. This is probably the first use case that comes to mind. Over the past decade, blockchain technology has gradually and continuously disrupted global finance. Much of this can be attributed to the emergence of the Ethereum network and its smart contract capabilities.

While Bitcoin emerged to create a digital alternative to exchange, it is Ethereum that truly decentralizes global finance. Ethereum effectively ushered in the era of decentralized finance, or DeFi for short.

Financial services such as lending, insurance, portfolio investing, staking, yield farming, trading and many other financial services can now be accessed on the blockchain.

Today, it is now possible to transact and make local and international payments from the comfort of your home. Recently, there has also been a new era of cryptocurrency payment gateways, where cryptocurrency holders can simply pay for services with their credit/debit card.

Algorand, Binance, Polymath, and Circle are just some of the well-known names offering financial and investment services on the blockchain.

Data Privacy and Protection

The world has never taken data protection more seriously than it does now. In the age of advanced technology and data mining, it is becoming more and more obvious that user data is the new oil.

In the right hands, data can be used to make informed decisions for the population, while in the wrong hands it can be manipulated to devastating effect. This makes the blockchain a safe place to store and protect user data without fear of possible compromise.

By its very nature, blockchain is a secure network where data is processed anonymously. The protection of personal data is further ensured by adding an extra layer of a dedicated data protection program.

healthy

You should find this interesting, but the basic concept of a healthy blockchain follows the logic of permanently storing records.

With blockchain technology, patients can now keep their medical records securely on the blockchain. This directly performs two key functions. First, patient health records can be easily tracked on the blockchain with full knowledge that these records have not been tampered with. This makes it easy to track a patient’s progress and medical history over time.

Second, storing patient medical records in a secure and tamper-proof location creates a central location where such information can be accessed with permission when needed. This further means that patients can receive treatment from anywhere in the world, and physicians can instantly know what to do simply by accessing the patient’s track record.

Election Transparency

By virtue of its inherent characteristics, blockchain technology makes it possible to conduct free and fair elections. It creates a path to transparency in the electoral process by keeping a permanent record of every vote.

Followmyvote is a blockchain-based platform focused on increasing the transparency of the voting process. It does this by distributing tokens to voters, which can only be used once during the voting process. This helps prevent multiple votes and various forms of manipulation. In the end, a permanent record of all votes was achieved, and the real decision was effectively in the hands of voters.

Copyright management

Nothing beats a non-fungible token. NFTs are digital tokens whose value is unique and cannot be recreated or exchanged. This has come in handy in copyright management in recent years.

NFTs can now be created as digital representations of unique things. The information contained in this NFT will indicate the rightful owner of the idea, and ownership can then be transferred to others at the discretion of the original owner.

A good example is selling Jack Dorsey’s first tweet. Jack Dorsey created the NFT from the tweet, effectively becoming the copyright owner of the tweet, and its sale meant he effectively transferred ownership to the buyer. Transfer records are permanently stored on the blockchain, while ownership is held by the new entity.

It cannot be tampered with, and the blockchain keeps records forever.

supply chain

We already know that the supply chain involves the entire stage of delivering goods and services to the final consumer. Thanks to blockchain technology, all parties in the supply chain can now monitor the flow and progress of the entire process.

They can see all the information in real time and track every aspect of the process. This automatically builds trust and reduces the need for constant communication between parties, leaving them room to focus on what really matters.

Overall, with the help of blockchain technology, parties can strengthen their relationship based on trust. They can also save costs and focus on delivering quality products and services.

real estate

If there’s one industry that probably shouldn’t be on this list, it has to be real estate. The real estate industry is known to be resilient and liquid when it comes to purchases and transfers. However, it has been one of the industries that has benefited greatly from blockchain technology.

Pdf2gerb: Perl Script Converts PDF Files to Gerber format

pdf2gerb

Perl script converts PDF files to Gerber format

Pdf2Gerb generates Gerber 274X photoplotting and Excellon drill files from PDFs of a PCB. Up to three PDFs are used: the top copper layer, the bottom copper layer (for 2-sided PCBs), and an optional silk screen layer. The PDFs can be created directly from any PDF drawing software, or a PDF print driver can be used to capture the Print output if the drawing software does not directly support output to PDF.

The general workflow is as follows:

  1. Design the PCB using your favorite CAD or drawing software.
  2. Print the top and bottom copper and top silk screen layers to a PDF file.
  3. Run Pdf2Gerb on the PDFs to create Gerber and Excellon files.
  4. Use a Gerber viewer to double-check the output against the original PCB design.
  5. Make adjustments as needed.
  6. Submit the files to a PCB manufacturer.

Please note that Pdf2Gerb does NOT perform DRC (Design Rule Checks), as these will vary according to individual PCB manufacturer conventions and capabilities. Also note that Pdf2Gerb is not perfect, so the output files must always be checked before submitting them. As of version 1.6, Pdf2Gerb supports most PCB elements, such as round and square pads, round holes, traces, SMD pads, ground planes, no-fill areas, and panelization. However, because it interprets the graphical output of a Print function, there are limitations in what it can recognize (or there may be bugs).

5 Blockchain Applications That Have Transformed the World of Technology

The blockchain is the decentralized database of the blocks of information, which gets recorded in the chain format and linked in a secured crypto graphical manner. This technology ensures proper safety of the data due to its secure nature, and it totally changes how people carry out transactions. It also brings about a faster and secure process of validating information needed to establish reliability.

Though blockchain technology came into the market to carry out only digital transactions, it is now used in various industries like supply chain, finance, health care, and many more.

The blockchain technology has made its position in mobile app development as well. Blockchain applications are transparent and accountable. From getting easy access to medical records and buying insurance, you can see blockchain applications everywhere.

Here are some of the areas where you can see the use of blockchain applications and how they have changed various industries.

1. Ripple

Ripple is useful for increasing banking transactions. The implementation of blockchain technology in the financial sector is much more profound than any other sector. Ripple proves this. It is one of the greatest tools to record and complete financial transactions.

It develops a large network despite strict physical boundaries. As there is no such third-party involvement present, the cost of these transactions is lower than usual. At the same time, the network also remains transparent and quite secured.

It is normally seen that financial transactions that happen globally are

error-prone and take a lot of time. In addition to this, when the transaction

fees and exchange rates get added up, the total cost usually gets high.

However, Ripple offers real-time international transactions without spending too much money. It has the network of about 200+ institutions making the process affordable, secure, and fast for all sorts of international transactions.

2. Etherisc

This blockchain application helps in automating flight insurance. Insurance is another area where blockchain is gaining popularity. Through this application, insurers can make smart contracts rather than getting involved in the traditional contracts that are usually complex. Etherisc is the blockchain application that helps customers buy flight insurance. If the flight gets canceled or delayed, they do not have to wait for months to get the payment back. This application ensures an on-time payout.

Emerging use cases of blockchain in healthcare and the life sciences

As the fundamental technology behind Bitcoin, the blockchain has traditionally been associated with the financial services sector. However, this incredibly flexible distributed ledger technology (DLT) has many more use cases than just financial transactions and it has now become a buzzword across all commercial sectors.

To get in depth knowledge on Microsoft business intelligence, enrich your skills on Blockchain online training professionals

A recent report published by PreScouter, a Chicago-based research intelligence company, reviews three broad areas of blockchain deployment within the life sciences sector, including applications in drug development, supply chain management, clinical trials management and patient-centric usage. The report also reviews use cases of blockchain within this sector, from proof-of-concept to real-world, large-scale deployments and identifies early adopters of blockchain, including key collaborations, across the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and healthcare industries.

What is the blockchain?

The blockchain is a decentralised, real-time list of records, which are called ‘blocks’. Each block contains an immutable timestamp that cannot be retroactively modified, as well as a cryptographic label of both the previous and next block in the chain, called a ‘hash’, which provides provenance. This ability to authenticate the history of the previous block allows traceability to the original transaction, which is known as the ‘genesis block’. Finally, each block contains the actual data of a record, which could be a financial transaction, a multiparty contract, a drug’s batch record, etc. The blockchain architecture prevents surreptitious modification of data or its provenance. Blockchains are managed by peer-to-peer networks of nodes, thus providing privacy and storage redundancy within a democratic, decentralised system.

Drug development and supply chain management

Two key concepts in drug manufacturing and supply chain management are provenance (the origin and/or ownership of an entity such as a drug, which attests to its authenticity or quality) and tracking/tracing (an unbroken chain of records of each step that a product such as a drug undergoes in its life cycle, from the raw materials used in manufacture to the ultimate sale by a pharmacy). Current processes that permit drug provenance and supply chain tracking are fragmented due to data silos, which can lead to human errors and fraud such as drug counterfeiting. Learn more from blockchain online course

Blockchain provides a mechanism to ensure quality across all steps of drug development and distribution, ranging from immutable batch records of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in the manufacturing process to easily reporting adverse events and recalling drug batches. One significant example of blockchain implementation in this area is the public-private partnership between the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and IBM. This collaboration is using blockchain to identify, track and trace prescription medicines and vaccines distributed throughout the country. Another example is the MediLedger Project, which brings together a consortium of drug manufacturers and distributors to track or trace drug batches and improve drug supply chain management using internet-of-things (IoT) principles built upon the backbone of the blockchain.

Clinical trials management

Clinical trials are highly complex endeavours, with a range of stakeholders including patients or study subjects, study sponsors, drug and medical device providers, clinical investigators, healthcare professionals and government regulatory bodies. On the one hand, sensitive data such as patients’ health records and the trial’s outcomes must remain private and secure, and the trial protocol itself must be immutable and transparent. On the other hand, the entire process must be conducted in a transparent manner for all stakeholders, to ensure that protocols are strictly followed. Moreover, secure but efficient communication between stakeholders from different professions and multiple clinical trial sites is necessary.

Due to this unique set of challenges, clinical trials are a perfect test case for the blockchain technology, as it provides for immutability, scalability, and traceability of records with multiple data access permission levels. For example, deployment of a clinical trial on a blockchain could help manage patient consent, maintain trial protocols, track patient samples and ensure secure communications between trial sites.

One such recent example came in 2019, where Boehringer Ingelheim agreed to manage its clinical trials on blockchain technology provided by IBM Canada. And in a collaboration between Triall and Sphereon, applications to improve auditability and operational efficiency in clinical trials is in development, with the Verial clinical document management solution now being used in the first clinical trial in production on a blockchain.

Patient-centric usage

There are a number of potential impacts of blockchain technology focused on the patient within healthcare. One early use case shows how ‘smart contracts’ (self-executing contracts built on the blockchain) allow for seamless and secure management of patient consent and health record ownership across data silos. Additional implementations can be found within prescription medicine management, patient claims and billings management, and data security for wearables and other IoT medical devices, as well as deployment in personalised medicine.

Numerous examples already exist of patient-centric blockchain usage. Guardtime, in collaboration with healthcare regulatory agencies in Estonia and the United Kingdom, is working on tracking and managing patients’ consent for the use of their healthcare records. The Prescrypt project, spearheaded by Deloitte in the Netherlands, is pursuing a completely different focus by working to put patients’ drug prescriptions on the blockchain for secure communication, usage tracking and analysis by healthcare professionals.

Conclusions

The use cases highlighted in PreScouter’s report demonstrate the power of blockchain in all sectors of the healthcare space. Adoption of blockchain within the life sciences has admittedly been slower than in other sectors, as the potential use cases of blockchain are not as straightforward and the rapidly evolving landscape of players presents a challenge for companies seeking to adopt the technology. Despite this slow adoption to date, it is predicted that blockchain technology will add values in excess of USD $3bn by 2025 in the life sciences sector.

Blockchain Certification | Blockchain Training Course | Blockchain Council

In all the market sectors, Blockchain technology has contributed to the redesign. The improvements that were once impossible have been pushed forward. Blockchain is one of the leading innovations with the ability to influence the various sectors of the industry. It also has the ability to be one of the career-influencing innovations at the same time. We have seen an increasing inclination towards the certification of the Blockchain in recent years, and there are obvious reasons behind it. Blockchain has everything to offer, from good packages to its universal application and futuristic development. Let’s address the reasons why one should go for Blockchain certification.

5 advantages of certification by Blockchain:

1. Lucrative packages- Everyone who completes their education or upskills themselves wants to end up with a good bundle, not only is one assured of a good learning experience with Blockchain, but the packages are drool-worthy at the same time. A Blockchain developer’s average salary varies between $150,000 and $175,000 per annum. Comparatively, a software developer gets a $137,000 per year salary. For a Blockchain developer, the San Francisco Bay area provides the highest bundle, amounting to $162,288 per annum. There’s no point arguing that learning about Blockchain is a smart decision with such lucrative packages.

2. Growing industry- When you select any qualification course, it becomes important that you choose a growing segment or industry that promises potential in the future. You should anticipate all of these with Blockchain. The size of the blockchain market is expected to rise from USD 3.0 billion in 2020 to USD 39.7 billion by 2025. This will see an incredible 67.3 percent CAGR between 2020-2025. To help business processes, several businesses are outsourcing Blockchain technologies. This clearly demonstrates that there will be higher demand in the future for Blockchain developers and certified Blockchain professionals.

3. Universal application- One of the major reasons for the success of Blockchain is that it has a global application. It is not sector-specific.

Blockchain is more than crypto

Since the two are almost always mentioned together, many people do not realize that cryptocurrency is just one application of blockchain. Predominantly, it facilitates transactions without the involvement of banks.

It seems that crypto may soon become an acceptable mode for international payments. This will give businesses access to an increasingly global supply chain.

However, there are plenty of other real-world applications of this game-changing technology. Blockchain has a solid future. The underlying technology already exhibits a great deal of potential, with numerous use cases across various industries.

Examples of how blockchain is changing the world we live in

Here are a few fantastic examples of blockchain at work. The sheer number of applications of the technology makes it next to impossible to list all. This is only the tip of the iceberg. But once you finish reading this blog, you will get a gist of the potential -and power- of what blockchain technology has to offer.

1. International money transfers

This is what cryptocurrency has been successfully doing all along. As people move away from traditional transfer options and onto the blockchain, they can acquire multiple benefits.

Without a central authority, individuals can transfer funds anywhere in the world, at any time, more quickly, and with lower transaction fees. And because transactions are completed faster for a fraction of the cost, it is a more favorable choice.

2. Paying parking fines

Though New York City was the first to propose this idea back in 2014, there has been no follow-up action as of yet. But just recently, South Africa mentioned the same idea. The implication is that governments are considering the use of blockchain for various applications.

3. Government level tasks

While we are on the subject of governments, why not mention those countries that are making headway in adopting blockchain technology.

In 2016, representatives of 30 government departments in Dubai investigated the possibility of becoming the world’s first blockchain-powered state.
Estonia, on the other hand, is collaborating with Ericsson. They aim to move public records onto the blockchain.
Let’s not forget Samsung’s efforts to help the South Korean government with the technology. They are using it for public safety and transport applications. Learn more from blockchain onine course

4. Charging electric cars

As electric cars are a relatively new concept, it will take time for other technological advancements to attach themselves to it. But a German utility company, RWE, is setting the record straight. They have taken a bold step to incorporate blockchain into their options. Now, this technology is backing their charging stations.

5. Car dealers

EV charging facilities are not the only blockchain use case to enter the automotive market. The Mobi initiative is carrying various companies towards the blockchain faster than you think.

Autocoincar is a platform for car dealers. It aims at facilitating the buying and selling of vehicles with the use of crypto all over the world. Though the company supports transactions through fiat currencies such as the US dollar, British pound, Euro, and UAE dirham, it also encourages people to buy a car for sale with bitcoin cash (BCH).

Like many other startups, autocoincars has introduced its cryptocurrency, the Autocoin. The technology backing it is likely to bring the digital currency into the mainstream. It’ll be available for making payments in real-time or for holding onto as reserve assets. Moreover, car dealers can now offer their stock of crypto to buyers and investors alike.

But the most significant advantage lies in the fact that the crypto car sales industry overcomes the exchange rate barrier. That is why there is so much potential for growth.

6. Smart contracts

This is precisely what it sounds- contracts that are much smarter than regular ones. Because smart contracts are developed on the blockchain, there are no intermediaries. And they don’t require a third-party to monitor and legalize them.

Smart contracts are gaining a great deal of traction, especially in the insurance sector. Companies such as Guardtime and Etherisc have already established a foothold. Industries are switching to them as they reduce the dependency on standard legal contracts. Moreover, blockchain has the ability to create trust in a trustless ecosystem with the use of public ledgers. That way, smart contracts can track claims and hold both parties accountable.

7. Copyright and royalty protection

With the explosion of online content, copyright and ownership issues are common concerns. Blockchain is promoting these laws in the digital space. All information is chronologically timestamped, ensuring a clear recording of events. So now, your music, videos, blogs, or any other content is secure.

Furthermore, since downloads can be monitored, artists and content creators can warrant their fair share of the money. Information such as royalty distribution will be available in real-time.

8. Healthcare

The healthcare system is bogged down by multiple inefficiencies. Primarily, they stem from the use of numerous forms, human error, and poor communication between doctors, lab technicians, patients, etc.

Blockchain can automate processes and save countless hours of paperwork. As forms and data are safely stored on the chain, it reduces the probability of human error.

Examples of blockchain already in use in the healthcare system include:

Health Nexus- provides decentralized blockchain patient records
ConnectingCare- tracks the progress of patients after they leave the hospital
MedRec – an electronic medical records system on blockchain designed to manage authentication, confidentiality, and data sharing
9. Digital voting

Voter fraud is a growing concern in developing as well as developed countries. With increasing criticism on the matter, there is a greater need to switch to the blockchain.

The technology touts a high level of transparency as well as information security. With these essential features, voter fraud can be completely eradicated. Any irregularities and attempts at distorting data can be highlighted in real-time. This can bolster a trusted, fair system that promotes success.

10. Cybersecurity

Blockchain is well-known for its ability to safeguard sensitive information. Industries rely heavily on protecting their data, especially with current trends circulating KYC (Know Your Customer) processes.

Remember that blockchain’s ledgers are decentralized. Additionally, blockchain data is encrypted. Information from one block is linked to another. That means that it can’t be corrupted or manipulated by one authority. Any unusual behavior will be instantly detected.

And data is entirely transparent to members (nodes) on a chain. While everyone can view the actions of other individuals, the true identity can remain hidden.

Wrapping up

Blockchain technology is an innovation that is being embraced by many industries. As we travel through the digital era, the functionalities of various technological developments will become more apparent.

Blockchain is offering a wide array of excellent solutions. But it is essential to understand that it cannot be the solution to every problem. Unique applications can satisfy issues that different businesses are facing.

What is currently being observed is the eagerness with which the IT sector is leveraging Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS). Major market trendsetters, such as Microsoft, Amazon, and IBM, have already started investing in it.

IT companies are aiming to create a whole new selection of services. Combining BaaS with cloud service, IoT, AI, etc. can open a vast number of solutions. Only time will tell how we will fare in this unexplored territory.
