Effects of Blockchain on Retail Industry
There have been many talks about Blockchain and its technical mechanisms. Experts and specialists evaluate its different aspects from a professional point and state complex explanations regarding this technology. Explanations that might not be completely understandable for the general public. For example, when there is the talk of retail and the use of Blockchain in it, the talk of complex technological trends that are used in Blockchain is not interesting for anyone of the stakeholders in this field. In fact, those who are active in this industry need to be aware of the level of application of Blockchain in their field. They should know whether they will have a simpler and more effective tool for their trades with this new technology or not. How is the use of Blockchain in the field of retail anyway?
The Performance of Blockchain in Retail
If Blockchain is to be used in the field of retail, the sellers and buyers and in general all the sides of the trades need to know that the speed of this new method is much more than that of traditional and other methods or not. Even if cryptocurrencies are not used in financial trades in retail and actual currencies be transferred in this infrastructure, still the speed of trades will be much more than before. In addition to speed, it is the number and volume of trades that will increase with the existence of Blockchain. This is considered an ideal advantage for this technology in the field of retail.
Security and Recognizing People’s Identity in Blockchain
The Blockchain system and financial trades with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin take place in a way that the sender and receiver are not aware of each other’s identity. This can lead to some problems in the retail systems. But apparently, there are ways to follow up on transactions. In fact, retail companies can trace the route of their customers. Also, there is no scam and change in the Blockchain network. As a result, the security of trades will be much more than in the past.
The Simplicity of Using Blockchain in Retail
Working with Blockchain to buy and sell is much simpler than previous methods. Not only the dimensions and volume of work are extensive, but also there are no international and cross-border constraints, and furthermore, the transactions will be much simpler than the past through developing methods supposed to implement cryptocurrencies and also through the existence of digital wallets. Currently, messaging services like WhatsApp are candidates to enter the crypto and Blockchain market, and companies like Facebook are looking to enable transactions with cryptocurrencies via messaging services easily. In this situation, it is obvious that Blockchain can be used in retail. The entrance of cryptocurrencies and Blockchain to the world of retail means that these new technologies and tools can easily become prevalent among the public. Because the matter of retail is something that most people in the society are engaged with and as a result, the fame and legality of cryptocurrencies and Blockchain will become more and more each day by being implemented in the field of retail. The truth is that mankind enjoys welfare. Blockchain and cryptocurrencies have the capacity to bring and create more welfare. Then sooner or later, we should wait for them to become universal.
