Blockchains is Tech Trend #4- In the Market for a Used Airplane Part?

Blockchains is #4 on our list of tech trends that are at the forefront of corporate data management and digital transformation. A blockchain is a “time-stamped series of immutable record of data that is managed by cluster of computers not owned by a single entity.” Each block of data is secured using cryptographic principles. Originally designed as online currency, this technology has applications for prediction markets, file storage, and supply chain auditing.
