The wide applicability of the blockchain technology makes it useful in many areas and is not limited to only the well-known cryptocurrency space. Because of the unique advantage of how blockchain upkeeps data integrity, we will see many security-conscious industries taking on and applying blockchain in the near future, if they are not in the process of doing so already.
We will also likely see a mainstream crossover and implementation of blockchain into both Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things. Due to the distributed nature of both IoT and AI, blockchain, being the underlying technology, can assist with more secure and efficient levels of security and complexity. This was difficult to accomplish prior to launch of blockchain technology.
