Blockchain technology and its applications in the banking,
financial services, and insurance (BFSI) sector have attracted a lot of attention
in the past few years, majorly due to its ability to transform existing
industries' foundations and business models. Presently, apart from
cryptocurrency applications, the other major practical applications of
Blockchain are still in the banking and financial sector; however, various
companies and institutions are now rapidly developing Blockchain-based
solutions to solve complex business problems. In general terms, Blockchain is a
subset of a broader distributed ledger technology (DLT), and it combines three
significant concepts – cryptography, smart contracts, and distributed ledger
design. Distributed ledger technology (DLT) is a fast-emerging approach that
records and shares data across various data stores/ledgers. DLT facilitates the
recording, sharing, and synchronization of transactions and data across a
distributed network of different network participants.
