Blockchain can play a role in any field of industry and life. One of the main applications of this technology is the development of the services trend in the retail industry. The entrance of Blockchain to the field of technology has led to a change in the outlook of the future changes in this field. The increase in the security of data, the development of communication on a wide scale and the possibility of implementing this platform on an international level without limitation and central surveillance make people look at it with more seriousness. In the following parts, we will talk about some of the benefits and capacities of Blockchain:
Blockchain Increases the Privacy of Customers
One of the most important aspects of Blockchain is adding more security to communications. This infrastructure, which is considered to be decentralized, is not under surveillance and control of any organization or institution. As a result, retailers and online stores that are constantly in financial communication with customers will increase the security of their activities with Blockchain. Put more precisely, when customers make contact with different retailers and online stores via the internet, purchase from them, or do other business, they offer them a large volume of information and data to themselves.
In this way, data and users’ privacy will be challenged. However, if retailers implement decentralized networks similar to Blockchain, data will be registered on a large and robbery- and change-proof infrastructure and the security of information will be provided.
Blockchain Makes Payments Varied and the Supply Chain More Transparent
Retailers will give a wide range of options to customers through Blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Using different cryptocurrencies can take the activity aspects of retailers to international scales. Given the fact that the security of payment network in the infrastructure of Blockchain has more security, different transactions are much simpler and more secure. The transparency that comes with different transactions in the Blockchain network will prevent fraud, scam, and the like.
Another benefit of Blockchain for retailers is the possibility of tracing the status of products and services from the moment of formation and production until the time they get to the hands of customers. By combining the internet of things, digital coding and Blockchain, any customer or any other beneficiary that is present in the supply chain of a product will be informed about its movement process.
Blockchain Is Only Beginning
Blockchain is still in its infancy. This new infrastructure can easily enter industries and different areas of life and create ideal amenities for facilitating the life of mankind. It is obvious that it still has some defects. There is always room for growth. Blockchain and cryptocurrencies that are based on its infrastructure and have the possibility for transactions will grow as well. It seems that we should prepare ourselves to use these new technologies and concepts related to them soon. In early days that internet was introduced to the world, no one thought one day everyone from kids to senior people would be engaged with the virtual world. Blockchain technology and its belongings will have a same situation, and they will one day become very tangible and familiar for everyone in any community and in any country.
