What the Blockchain Looks Like in Everyday Life

Medical Purposes

Medical databases for example could be stored on the blockchain therefore taking away a centralized ownership of medical records. It is complicated enough to get your doctor to refill your medication, then go to the pharmacy to hear your insurance hasn’t approved the refill, talking on the phone with the insurance just to hear you need to call your doctor and the drama continues. If medical records and prescription information, shipping information, payments, all of these processes can be made easier. Without the centralized control of institutions information can be transferred more easily while still being secured and private.

Voting on Elections

For voting and voter privacy the blockchain is perfect. With voter suppression and suspicions of voter fraud the blockchain would solve those problems. Every eligible person could be registered to vote and voter fraud would be eliminated through the proof of work validation.

Real Estate

Blockchain technology can fix problems such as the notorious middle man in real estate and fraud. The records stored on the network about sellers, buyers, renter, or the property itself would upkeep a level of trust amongst participants. The proof of work mining process would ensure there is no fraud taking place and ensure a secure financial protocol.

Online Shopping

During the Covid-19 pandemic there has been a boom in e-commerce, but shopping online can lead to scams and the possibility of being hacked. If the blockchain is used for retail transactions, the buyer’s information would be secure and their credit cards could not be hacked. It would make it easier to purchase things from other countries that use different currencies, as cryptocurrencies are decentralized. All stores and companies are already online and working on updating their softwares, so why not use the blockchain?
