Records of transactions, based on certain agreed upon conditions form the basis for exchanging assets between two parties (the frictions in the processes, such as ascertaining the real owner of the asset, capital/asset is locked for days until the transaction is cleared, still exists as they could not be solved by technology until now).

By maintaining an immutable, distributed ledger in a distributed network, Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) systems has the potential to reduce the friction in business networks and thus the operating cost for business transactions…

Blockchain being a disruptive technology provides immense opportunities to the government, industry, and academia to design and implement transparent solutions for many real-life problems. The technology is available beyond crypto-currencies for a broader variety of applications for a variety of sectors.
