Computrade's recent partnerships serve as foundation for the wide-scale adoption of Blockchain technology.
Blockchain technology is the backbone of a new type of Internet. It allows digital information to be distributed but not copied. Originally designed for the digital currency Bitcoin, the technology is now finding other potential uses.
Information held on a Blockchain exists as a shared - and continually reconciled - database. Using the network this way has obvious benefits. The Blockchain database isn't stored in any single location, such that the records it keeps are actually public and easily verifiable.
There is no centralized version of the information, which a hacker may corrupt. Its data hosted by millions of computers simultaneously, and is accessible to anyone on the internet.
Computrade foresees the application of its expertise in data infrastructure, big data analytics and data security to play a significant role in the roll-out of Blockchain technology in the Philippines.
