Blockchain Penetrating Everything?steemCreated with Sketch.

in #blockchain4 years ago

A lot was made of blockchain and the potential. Like many technologies, the hype outpaced the implementation. Blockchain has not been adopted to the degree many anticipated.

That is starting to change.

What is interesting is the fact that many newer technologies are starting to be paired with blockchain. In fact, the potential of coupling blockchain with some of these technologies is just starting to be realized.


The latest is the idea of drones, or Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), being tied to blockchain.

Two of the biggest challenges with this industry is security and tracking. As drones get more popular, the risks increase. If a drone is hacked, someone could exert damage by, for example, flying it into a crowd.

There is also the issue of congestion. As we know, planes are monitored in flight to ensure they do not fly into each other. Air traffic controllers, or their computer systems, are watching all that is taking place.

With UAS, they literally fly under the radar, making the present system useless.

Blockchain could alter this completely.

To start, using the key system would prevent hacks from the outside. This will provide increased security, something the regulators are seeking.

It also would take care of the tracking. With each drone tagged to a blockchain, identification is rather easy. The system could be developed to have the drone "post" to the blockchain are different interval, providing a tracking system. It would be very similar to what some companies are doing with their supply chains.

Over the next decade, we are likely to see an explosion of drones as companies seek to alter their delivery systems. Amazon is investing heavily in the technology, seeking to automate their process even more.

Once again, blockchain offers a great deal of potential. The question is what will happen over the next few years in terms of implementation.


Hello! This will be copy/pasted... but please pay attention to it... It's very important, I just need to spread the message quickly, before too many people are affected.


There are people/a person, going around on bitshares and scamming people through proposals. I want to bring light to this as quickly as possible, for anyone who uses bts. It needs to be spread so that people are aware. The scammers seem to have already taken millions of bts and who knows how much more. :/

Thank you for taking the time to read this. It is very important to those who use BTS!

TL;DR: Yes, this is copy/pasted. It is to warn you about a scam going around. Please do not hate me for spamming this information around. :/ I am trying to possibly save people's crypto before it's too late!
