According to a new study published by Polaris Market Research the Global Blockchain Technology Market is anticipated to reach USD 16.82 billion by 2026. Also termed as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), blockchain enables secure transaction over a distributed network. Since the transactions are taken place usually over the network, it is difficult to reverse the transaction history. Blockchain also eliminates the need of third-party verifications since the ledgers are shared by all the parties over the distributed network. These are some of the major factors for adoption of blockchain technology.

For example, with blockchain’s extended support for Internet of Things (IoT), the technology and telecom vertical is implementing blockchain for initiating a better coordination between different devices.

The technology will have the capacity to help IoT applications in technology and telecom sector along with the enhanced payment solutions.
