Blockchain will soon transform diverse sectors including finance, energy, health/pharma, agriculture, food/chemicals, transportation, autonomous systems, sharing economies, artificial intelligence, robotics etc. Several states have started using or exploring how they can use blockchain to manage critical records, ensure data integrity, and provide more transparent access to and management of company information.
