With 8 out of 10 consumers trading on digital markets, it is of no surprise that digital currency and its Blockchain foundation have become the focal point of motions to revolutionize society’s economic institutions. The Blockchain system, an immutable database that collects, verifies, and store transactions in an electronic ledger, it regulates and prevents fraudulent business activities via smart contacts, and connects users in a way we’ve never seen before. It is a must to attain a head start in the Blockchain industry and its implementation in our lives.
