Hence if we talk about Blockchain, we have this myth that this is only going to affect the ‘IT SECTOR’ since people working on coding and other IT projects will soon face the threat in terms of getting employment since everything is going to be replaced by ‘Artificial Intelligence’.

But we often forget that ‘if a coin is dropped in a sea, every sea animal living in that area gets affected by it might be majorly or in a very small amount’. The same way Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence have left huge advancements in changing the techno environment in financial markets too.

Do not be very happy if you know about blockchain because even a kid knows that, where we all are actually lacking is in understanding the impacts and effects that it would bring to banking & financial markets and what exact future we all can expect out of this.

The banking& the financial sector is the one that deals with either lending or borrowing money. So we as an individual can understand that we want our issued money to be safe wherever we put it across in the mode of FD’s etc. 

The very same way banks and even no one would like to get bankrupt; hence they carry a big responsibility on their shoulders in terms of taking care of money. This is the very fast-moving sector where a lot of manual work is required too. People have seen various obstacles to move forward in this industry:

Maintaining a big amount of data


Huge manual data entry

Financial crises
