  • In the last few months, blockchain technology has experienced many ups and downs, from Bitcoin prices skyrocketing to the instant downfall of prices. Yet blockchain presented itself as the new internet. Thus, the development of blockchain use-cases is still one of the top trends in 2018. Indeed, not only reputed organizations are looking forward to adopting this technology but also startups are trying to yield the benefits of DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology). Therefore, the list of Blockchain use cases is expanding amazingly.

    In this article, you can know a few innovative ways the blockchain technology will be used to transform our lives in the coming years, including those Blockchain use cases as well which show that it is already in use.

    Best Blockchain Use Cases 2018

    Employment History


    Every HR manager would agree anytime that the hiring of employees is one of the arduous processes in HRD. Moreover, verifying an applicant's information contained in the resume or CV is expensive and time-consuming. Indeed, even the pre-employment screening process may not provide an HR representative with the proper assurance that the obtained information is complete and accurate.

    Similar to the advantages that DLT offers to the voting landscape can also help enhance the employment screening process. Ultimately, this will benefit from hiring employees they see fit for the job.
