The use of cryptocurrency empowered by blockchain in the network can enable businesses to maximize efficiency, eliminate the risk of fraud, ensure transactional autonomy, and lower operational costs. It can lead to a more transparent and accessible business model.
Blockchain serves as the underlying technology for many cryptocurrencies and can be implemented in industries beyond finance.
Because of blockchain’s decentralized nature and immutable ledger, cryptocurrencies become more secure than traditional payment systems. Cryptocurrencies, built on blockchain, are digital or virtual currency designed to work as a medium of exchange in the digital world. They use cryptography to secure and verify transactions as well as control the creation of new units.
Traditional financial transactions often involve varying exchange and interest rates, and several other charges imposed by financial service providers. Moreover, transactions take days to complete. A cryptocurrency powered by blockchain enables users across borders to transact much faster while saving middlemen fees.
Businesses, by enabling users to transact through cryptocurrencies, can exploit an untapped market. Many people are connected to the internet but are unable to transact with businesses overseas due to the lack of traditional exchange systems. Cryptocurrencies fill this missing link and provide a platform for people to connect with your business.
Smart consumers worry about their data being misused by banks, credit card companies, and other financial intermediaries. A business accepting payments through a cryptocurrency provides consumers with an option to decide how much information they wish to share.
All cryptocurrency transactions on the blockchain are anonymous yet transparent. A distributed ledger records transactions in the database but does not disclose the identities of the parties involved in transactions. On the other hand, anyone with a public address (the online identity of a party created by the network) can go through previous transactions. It enables a business to present itself as an open, more transparent organization to its stakeholders and consumers.
One of the most disruptive features of cryptocurrencies is their ability to eliminate the middleman from transactions using smart contracts. For example, a bank is a middleman, which verifies transactions between two parties through its central server. Every transaction handled by the bank results in a service fee that businesses and consumers bear. Eliminating the service fee paid to the middleman lead to overall savings and reduced operational costs over time.
A transaction verified and processed through a middleman can often be time-consuming. A cryptocurrency transaction on the blockchain does not need any human intervention, which results in increased efficiency.
