What is a Blockchain?
The ability to distribute digital information through the revolutionary new technology known as blockchain is stirring up conversation across the nation. Although blockchain is an extremely expansive and complicated topic, a knowledgeable expert successfully summed it up in 500 words so you can stay engaged in the conversation.
While the technology is most well-known for its application within the world of cryptocurrency, there are many practical uses for this digital ledger. Some experts are considering its potential to reinvent digital marketing through its decentralized advertising system; an approach that will allow marketers to focus on directly targeting the consumer, launch cross-promotional B2B contracts, provide transparency with consumers, improve privacy and security, and allow crowdsourcing data collection.

Because of this, many see blockchain as a tool to improve efficiency and standards within industries.
