FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Blockchain is a decentralized transaction and data management technology developed first for bitcoin cryptocurrency.

A digital ledger that keeps record of all transactions taking place on a peer to peer network.It is decentralized and so, there is no need of any central certifying authority.Encrypted information can be shared among multiple providers without the risk of a privacy breach.

It represents an innovation in information registration and distribution that eliminates the need for a trusted party to facilitate digital relationships.Authentication and authorization, vital to digital transactions are established as a result of the configuration of blockchain technology.

Private blockchains are deployed either within an organization or shared among a known group of participants. They can be limited to a predefined set of participants. In this case, no one else can access them or the data residing in them. They can be secured in a similar way to securing other integrated enterprise applications (e.g. firewalls, VPN etc).

A smart contract is code that is deployed to the blockchain. Each smart contract contains code that can have a predefined set of inputs.

Following the distributed model of the blockchain, smart contracts run on every node in this technology, and each contract's data is stored in every node and can be queried at any time. Smart contracts can also call other smart contracts, enforce permissions, run workflow logic, perform calculations etc.

Smart contract code is executed within a transaction - so the data stored as a result of running the smart contract (i.e. the state) is part of the blockchain's immutable ledger.

Internet of Things (IoT) is an ecosystem of connected physical objects that are accessible through the internet.

IoT is a transformational force that can help companies improve performance through IoT analytics and IoT security to deliver better results. It helps organizations reduce cost through improved process efficiency, asset utilization and productivity.

Blockchain technologies have the potential to radically change the face of industries and redefining the way companies do business. Blockchain eliminates huge amounts of recordkeeping, which can get very confusing when there are multiple parties involved on a transaction.

Benefits of adopting this technology into business.

  1. Efficiency

    As in blockchain technology, transactions are done directly in between the two parties without any involvement of the third party.

  2. Auditability

    On the blockchain network, each transaction detail is recorded subsequently and it provides an audibility for the asset in between two parties. It is especially beneficial for the businesses in which data source is needed in order to authenticate the assets.

  3. Traceability

    In the blockchain, tracking goods in a supply chain is pretty easy and secured.

  4. Transparency

    Transparency is one of the major benefits of blockchain to small, medium as well as large businesses. In order to provide transaction details against commercial construct, trust and transparency needs to be maintained in the process for a stable relationship instead of negotiation.

  5. Security

    Each transaction is recorded and verified in the network through complex cryptographic problems. The information authenticity is assured through complex mathematical algorithms.

  6. Feedback

    Another benefit of blockchain technology is feedback. The manufacturers and designers of the asset can easily track the assets and accommodate the asset management in products in order to make it more effective.

  7. Lower transaction costs

    Blockchains are less costly due to low transaction fees, elimination of third-party intermediaries and overhead costs for exchanging assets.

Here is why blockchain is attractive, it's distributed nature. In an enterprise, centralized control can translate into security. With blockchain, which is decentralized, the technology works best when information sharing is a necessity across multiple parties.
