And now, with blockchain technology on the rise, the nature of that impact could change.

That’s because blockchain creates a decentralized database that no single person or entity can change or alter without the consensus of the larger participating group. This consensus format is also what makes it so secure, allowing it to act as a store of value for things including cryptocurrencies and digital goods such as NFTs— a game-changer in a digital world where value was traditionally hard to quantify.
