How are Blockchains and Other Decentralized Technologies Changing the World We Live In?

As the fourth Industrial Revolution unfolds, we are witnessing significant transformation in the ways in which we store, use, share and collect data.

Similarly, as IoT devices increase at the edge of the network, we are pushing a massive amount of data computation toward data centers.  We are faced with significant challenges relating to privacy, security, scalability, and reliability of real-time services.

The intersection of the Internet of Things and blockchain technology raises critical questions.
