Blockchain is a foundation that is best known for allowing the development of cryptocurrency due to its inherent security.
What is exciting about blockchain is that it allows a secure form of verification to enable systems that need to verify identity in many different applications.
The applications for this verification can be applied to finances, voting and the amendment of official documents, such as land registry.
