Blockchains: How can they be used?

We've all heard about Blockchains but how can they be used in the real world? How can we apply them? What problems can they solve?

Well, in this video I'll give you 9 examples:

  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Smart odometers
  • Notary
  • Digital voting
  • Food industry
  • Tracking of shipments & goods
  • Smart contracts
  • Medical records
  • Distributing royalties to artists
