Details
Advocates proclaim that blockchain technology will help financial organizations speed up settlements and ensure the certainty of ownership, while improving transaction transparency. However, there are several technological challenges that continue to hinder the implementation of blockchain with payment processors. Scalability is one of, if not the biggest, issue in this regard.


How do we ensure that extending the scope of blockchain applications won’t negatively affect the speed of operations? Moreover, how we safeguard against security breaches?
