Blockchain has already made an impact on various industries — it is poised to change or even replace
the infrastructure of the financial services industry, and other industries like transportation can expect
disruption as well. Blockchain technology, like many new technologies, can completely transform the

secured, digitized transactions with approval granted mutually by participating parties, tracked in a
common history, and requiring no central authority.
