A challenge to our understanding of Blockchain Technology is lack of accurate and complete knowledge of the technology and its impact to numerous industries. Current work in our firm is aimed at solving business organizational needs by implementing different types of Blockchain incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning, thus separating the intrinsic activities of Blockchain capabilities from myths.
This information is invaluable in understanding how Blockchain can solve complex issues in the healthcare industry, keep organizations compliant with their regulators and go beyond the most widely known use case of crypto-currencies, and the ICO marketplace. I will highlight the contributions that the Blockade Technologies has strived to make in today's enterprise.
