4 min readMar 2, 2020


It’s not just for the cryptocurrency market, companies should start to maintain their data with blockchain technology to improve their business operation systems.

Nowadays, collecting data is one among key factors in business operations. After being aggregated and analyzed, these statistics and facts become information — the basis of decision making, from the simplest to the greatest, which decides the existence and thrive of a business.

The evolution of how we maintain data

Since ancient times, people have known how to store data by carving symbols on stone surfaces. Later, humans invented letters and then paper, marking the first big step in storing data.

However, data stored in the form of physical documents show some problems. Firstly, data is getting more day by day, it needs more space to store documents. Secondly, hard documents are easier to be lost, broken, and it is harder to when you want to reach some specific information.

Then, to solve these problems, we have computers to help us store data more efficiently. Data is stored on in-house organization’s servers. It’s called digitizing data, which helps us search and use data more easily.

However, the point of storing data is to help businesses analyze these plain statistics to understand customer demand, and take actions to meet their needs, thereby, increase revenue and other needs in business.

That’s when we have internet and cloud storage, which change the way we store and use data. This makes storage become some kind of a commodity when individuals or a company store, organize, manage, share, and back up their data to a system maintained by suppliers (or third parties).

But, all of these storage methods have one thing in common, it’s centralized. This means your data is always been staring at and although these third parties often provide security control service, there are human errors that put your business data at risk.

Blockchain with its decentralization feature can not only solve these security problems but enhance the way we collect and manage our data.

  • Making strategic decisions more precisely based on realistic data.

Easy to adopt new business model

Now, as the rise of new technologies, our customers are also getting smarter. They realize the potential of their own data and want more value from it. This sometimes requires companies to transform their business models to explore other ways to serve their customers.
