Need for Blockchain

in #blockchain2 years ago

Blockchain is the innovation of 2017. You may thank bitcoin, altcoins (digital currency), and ICOs (Initial Coin Offering) for the ascent of blockchain. A huge number of ventures have just been based over blockchain and more tasks are being made each day.

As indicated by an overview, 58% of expansive ventures are thinking about an approach to execute blockchain in their undertakings. In any case, do they truly require a blockchain?

In this article, you'll take in the motivation behind blockchain and what questions you ought to ask yourself before settling on a choice on blockchain.

Why now?

The blockchain idea was first presented by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta in 1991 as "a cryptographically secured chain of squares," which implies a chain or hinders that are connected and cryptographically secured. Each piece is a mix of three things; a hash pointer to the past square, a timestamp, and exchange information. By outline, blockchains are secure and hard to adjust.

There are three key reasons why blockchain is getting to be standard today:

Expanded advanced preparing power

Quick development in cybercrimes

Ascent of bitcoin and digital money

Blockchain, by configuration, requires higher handling power than ordinary information registering. It is all a result of excess of information, dispersed capacity, and cryptography. Information encryption and decoding is an expensive issue by nature. Today, PCs have all the more preparing power because of present day processors created by NIVIDIA.

Cybercrime has developed multifold in the previous couple of years. The hacking of a billion or more Yahoo accounts, the Equifax information break, and expanded ransomware harms are only a couple of occurrences. Indeed, more than one million digital dangers are discharged each day and by 2020, more than 200 billion IOT gadgets will require security. Today, Cyber Security is one of the greatest difficulties for CEOs.

Bitcoin and digital currency are one of the most compelling motivations for the expanding prevalence of blockchain. Bitcoin is a cryptographic money made by a mysterious individual named Satoshi Nakamoto, who utilized blockchain innovation to make and disseminate secure advanced cash.

Major issue

Today, blockchain is "the blockchain" due to Bitcoin. What's more, on the off chance that you take a gander at the motivation behind why Bitcoin was made, there is single word that can depict it superior to whatever else, i.e., TRUST. Bitcoin was made to defeat the question and non-straightforwardness of money related organizations.

Comprehend blockchain

Blockchain is useful for value-based frameworks. We should take a gander at the meaning of blockchain:

Blockchain is an innovation to make and keep up a cryptographically secure, shared, and circulated record (a database) for exchanges. Blockchain brings put stock in, responsibility, and straightforwardness to computerized exchanges.

All exchanges that exist on a blockchain are shared and disseminated among a system of distributed PCs. Exchanges are scrambled and unscrambled utilizing private and open keys.

How about we expel the security part from the rundown. I wager the majority of the endeavor frameworks would prefer not to be open, straightforward, or appropriated. Additionally, a framework based on blockchain does not just set aside a more drawn out opportunity to process exchanges, yet additionally requires numerous more circumstances the assets, for example, preparing, power, and information exchange. On the off chance that that is the situation, you don't generally require blockchain.

Decision diagram


Blockchain innovation essentially has an issue and it's not for everybody. Part a solitary exchange into squares, appropriating, and copying it on a great many PCs, getting endorsement from them, encoding and unscrambling is a considerable measure of work and it's not achievable for generally frameworks.

Here are a portion of the key difficulties with blockchain.


As we've found in our before definition, blockchain isn't anything but difficult to execute. Information is repetitive on a huge number of dispersed PCs and every one of these PCs must concur and approve. All clients on a blockchain are open however mysterious, and can be anyplace on the planet. It's not something where you can get a telephone and make a call. Blockchain innovation isn't straightforward by non-specialized individuals and requires a specialist level of comprehension of innovation.

Open and Transparent

Not all frameworks should be open and straightforward. A blockchain based framework requires endorsement from every single taking an interest hub. While the blockchain procedure is open and straightforward, it could without much of a stretch prompt some difference among taking part gatherings and postpone the handling.

Execution and Time

Execution is a noteworthy worry in a blockchain exchange. Every exchange is conveyed and shared and requires every included gathering to approve and endorse the progressions. Not exclusively does the procedure prompt an exchange execution yet the season of fulfillment is high.

Exchange cost

Dispersing information and cryptographical tasks are time-and asset devouring and prompt higher exchange costs. Blockchain exchanges require an exceptional sort of equipment and have an appeal for power. Typical PCs aren't adequate to take an interest as blockchain hubs. You should burn through a huge number of dollars on new PCs that can bolster blockchain exchange handling.

Open Source

Open blockchain programming is open source and normally accessible in Github to download and add to people in general.

Signing off,


Your article very good and interesting, I love it and permission to Resteem

Very insightful, thanks for writing this @hemanthoj, resteemed and upvoted.

Thanks for sharing, great insights. I've smashed the upvote button for you!

Blockchain is why crypto has blown up, it is the revolutionary technology that businesses all over the world will adopt in the foreseeable future.

If you are looking to get hold of some crypto without investing or mining, look into They are a co-creation platform were you get rewarded for giving feedback to crypto startups on the platform. You can earn Crowdholding's token as well as DeepOnion, ITT, Smartcash and many other ERC-20 tokens.

I did not know that the concept of Blockchain existed before Nakamoto. I mean, from the 90s. Due to the growing of Bitcoin and the rest of cryptos in 2017, I think this 2018 will be the year when the people will realize that the blockchain tecnology has a lot of application beyond the cryptocurrencies. There are a lot of projects about applying blockchain to institutional processes, even elections. This would be revolutionary.

I thinks that we must poll our votes only through Ballot Papers,,,,What's happening in India now a days that govt. is fixing EVM(electronic voting machine) and winning the election(there are enough proofs)

Elements of Bitcoin's blockchain goes back even further. Merkle Trees were patented on 1979 by Ralph Merkle. One of the first digital currencies, E-Cash was conceived in 1983.

These and other pieces all came together exploding on the scene as Bitcoin. And now we're off an running.

Need for a blockchain yes of course.

I am a big fan of cryptos esp. bitcoin and ethereum bec. that is what will give us more power over our own money, in banks we cann't control our money and govt. can use it as it wants it.
bitcoin and ethereum offer us freedom from our govt.
That's way all govt. over the world have tight mood on crytos.
because it is eating up what call fiat currency.........
We are discovering our own the people , for the people.....

thanks for this information

nice effort man!!

hello Hemanth, the bitcoin which is based on blockchain technolody, is very hard to create(or mine). The process is very power and computation intensive. It seem like the Gold version of money in digital form. Like we require manpower and other resources to mine Gold, bitcoin need similar resources to. It is unlike Fiat Central Bank Currency which they keep printing and distributing without any limit.
So there lies a great future for bitcoin and blockchain.

Sehr guter beitrag. Danke

Great post, so many good points. To the future!

Todays users are demanding transparency as internet access gives society more power, in terms of available information and the ability to demand and create change of existing systems in place. At Blockbasis we believe cryptocurrency and blockchain, are an alternative to a debt-based, trust-dependent, financial system.
