Blockchain has a proven use case with the digital currency bitcoin, which is currently trading at $1,000 per bitcoin and has a market cap of $16 billion. Now industry leaders are testing the waters with the use of blockchain technology to simplify traditional business practices that require lots of tedious manual effort. According to Bloomberg News, financial and technology firms were projected to invest $1billion in blockchain technologies in 2016.
