Industries that are heavily regulated are typically subject to regulation because industry participants require protection. Regulation lends an element of assurance and trust to industries such as finance, insurance, and healthcare. Regulated industries are highly transactional too, with banking and finance as a prime example.
Blockchain has a revolutionary capacity to boost trust and security for all parties because the decentralised nature of blockchains ensures greater transparency and traceability. Blockchain also has the potential to hugely increase the efficiency of transactions because data can rapidly and securely be transmitted across the blockchain.
The bottom line is that blockchain can make it easier for regulated industries to stay compliant while ensuring ongoing operational efficiency. Efficiency leads to higher profitability while an environment of trust reduces the risk of costly disagreements and data breaches.
Blockchain is an incredibly malleable technology and looking at specific examples is the best way to understand just broadly blockchain can be applied to regulated industries. Here are a number of top examples in different regulated industries:
