blockchain technology more secure than traditional financial system

by deborasumopayroll In reply to Is blockchain technology ...

Unlike traditional systems, the Blockchain technology breaks every single data in its system into small chunks and then distributes it across the entire network. In fact, it lacks a central point of management; no one has control over any information in the system. Also, each node in the Blockchain system has access to the full details of the ledger. Therefore, when any node or computer breaks down, it will not lead to any data loss.

The Blockchain systems are complex and have the ability to securely store and allow online information sharing. This happens without betraying privacy and transparency of the involved parties. This is precisely why innovators and investors have started applying Blockchain technology in different major sectors. All this is meant to increase data protection and prevent fraud.

Any information and transaction that happen on the Blockchain systems are encrypted. It’s therefore unlikely to tamper with data. Anyone with access to the system can check the distributed ledger on all the nodes and verify whether or not it has been changed. And in case someone alters the data information, the signature is considered invalid.

One of the Most Secured Technology is Blockchain

Because, the security of personal data is a human right. A blockchain could be one of the methods of ensuring this. A decentralised database containing sequential, cryptographically linked blocks of digitally signed asset transactions, governed by a consensus model.” Blockchain technology is a peer-to-peer networked database governed by a set of rules. A blockchain represents a shift away from traditional trust agents and a move towards transparency. As a technological building block, it permits applications from a broad band of industries to take advantage of sharing, tracking, and auditing digital assets.

Blockchain has been considered as a solution to a number of issues related to digital transactions because it solves data security, currency reproduction, chargebacks, etc. It is also helpful in cross border transactions and in fraud prevention by improving safety and security. Compared to traditional bank systems, the blockchain systems are more efficient and accurate and if banks and other financial institutions adopt blockchain methodology, then you can expect more security, reliability, and fascinating ways of transferring funds and important information.

The blockchain is ultimately a ledger that represents accounting entries. Therefore, bank accounts could come to be represented on blockchains making them more secure, accessible and cheaper to maintain. Furthermore, it could help alleviate the risk of bank runs.
