What makes Process Safety Management certificate different from other NEBOSH certifications?
I believe the evolution and development of Blockchain and all related technologies such as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) are rapidly growing and gaining ground in almost all industries.
If we look at the most popular blockchain platforms Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric, R3 Corda, Ripple and Quorum, we can see that some are focused on financial services and the rest are cross-industry platforms. I believe we will see more and more industry focused platforms as each industry has its own characteristics. Once we have that and the platforms become easy enough for any organisation to develop their own systems with all the benefits the blockchain technlogy offer, Blockhain will be the mainstream. I can already see tens of applications in almost every industry. Some industries haven't figured out yet but it is going to happen soon. Internet went through the same stage at its start where not every industry could understand how they could benefit form the Internet. Now every single industry and business use the Internet, and I think the same will happen with Blockchain.
