A massive opportunity

Nowadays there is a chance to restructure the world’s financial systems. Moreover, wireless devices are faster than before. At low cost, a message can travel from anywhere in the world in a split second.

Money does not work efficiently. It can take days to clear and finalize a simple financial transaction. The process is costly. Some $5 trillion in transaction fees are wasted yearly. Some 2.2 billion people worldwide have absolutely no access to new financial products. Their transactions are so low that banks cannot make a profit.

With the right technology, we can do better

The promise of blockchain. Developers and entrepreneurs knew that blockchain is the perfect technology. Those blockchains are critical to the most effective and inclusive banking markets.

A blockchain is a typical ledger. It guarantees a series of blocked transactions, three essential characteristics:

  • Block Every module should be understood by everyone, i.e., modules are widespread knowledge.
  • Everyone in the block future block will write a transaction.
  • No one can change block transactions or block order.

Therefore, everyone can have one public ledger. Moreover, it is better than a hidden repository by a centralized force and exchanges via secret data sets. It can be read, in which everyone can write. Still, no one can change what is written.

The use of a blockchain with those properties is unlimited. Blockchain technology can bring about a faster, cheaper, safer, infinite economy.

A unique triangle. Blockchains are mostly of interest until now. The blockchain trilogy may be a strong testament to the ideological nature of blockchains today. Some 2000 testimonials and projects reveal blockchains can give two of the following three characteristics:

  • Security
  • Scalability
  • decentralization

Thelma does not offer good options. Therefore, we are in an existing financial system without decentralization. Volumes of transactions may disappear without security. The person who provided the goods or services may discover the money for those has gone missing; Moreover, debts can be wiped out, and enemies can manipulate the public ledger for their benefit. Without scaling, only a small network will allow you to transact; You cannot participate in the global financial system. Meanwhile, no customer should consider settling on any of the basic features.

Market opportunities & concluding insights

The market is great with major games like Fortnight and Minecraft, etc. with over 100 million players per month each. Meanwhile, Blockchain can be used to safely store records. They provide the games with an economic value via NFTs.
