Welcome to Blockchain X

  • Blockchain 101

    You’ve heard of Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency or Ethereum? Well Blockchain drives them all. It’s the technology that improves the efficiency and reliability of transactions and exchange of data as a ‘decentralised, distributed and incorruptible digital ledger’. Still need more clarity? Join us to understand what Blockchain is, how it works and what the application for the enterprise are now and in the future.  

    Performance

    The performance between decentralised transactions differ from one to another due to increases in security, interoperability and inclusiveness. The performance varies so analysis performance in Blockchain-based systems is a key area of focus and development.

    Resilience

    The resilience in Blockchain lies in the back up of transactional data where it’s copied hundreds or even thousands of times at different locations across the world not just the city it was made in like London or Singapore or where other people are participating in the blockchain in that market.

    Integration

    Businesses are already increasing the efficiency, security, and transparency of their brands by integrating Blockchain technology into their existing production and shipping processes. It’s important to connect Blockchain to various systems such as ERP, CRM and other back-end legacy systems to allow a seamless customer transaction.

    Platforms

    The number of Blockchain platforms are increasing by the day.
