Pioneered by Bitcoin, cryptocurrency transfer apps are exploding in popularity right now. Blockchain is especially popular in finance for the money and time it can save financial companies of all sizes.
By eliminating bureaucratic red tape, making ledger systems real-time and reducing third-party fees, blockchain can save the largest banks $8-$12 billion a year, according to a recent article by ComputerWorld
Internet of Things (IoT) Use Cases:
Blockchain-infused IoT adds a higher level of security to prevent data breaches by utilizing transparency and virtual incorruptibility of the technology to keep things “smart.”

Blockchain can solve many of the problems plaguing logistics and supply chain management.
I think that blockchain enables data transparency by revealing a single source of truth. By acknowledging data sources, blockchain can build greater trust within the industry. The technology can also make the logistics process leaner and more automated, potentially saving the industry billions of dollars a year. Blockchain is not only safe, but a cost-effective solution for the logistics industry
Government Use Cases:

Blockchain has the potential to cut through millions of hours of red tape every year, hold public officials accountable through smart contracts and provide transparency by recording a public record of all activity
