Tracking system

Blockchain is a brilliant technology that has been used in tracking records of various corona patients. In Asia however, the records for the financial aids were saved on this master ledger helping the government in distributing properly. Many insurance companies have decided to use this technology to keep track of financial claims in the future.

So many people will implement cryptocurrencies as a means of payment so that they can be protected from fraudsters.

Advancement in public banking

There are many people with low income and some even do not have any bank account access. Some government such as the NewYork government has presented a bill having a ledger designed for public banking.

Such banking would issue wallets to the people who can easily transfer the money without bank accounts' hassles. The upcoming years would show an increase in cryptocurrency activities. Many new laws can also come up front that would make it legal. Suitable education and awareness will make people understand and use cryptocurrencies more appropriately.

Now is time to make cryptocurrency and blockchain familiar to people like the paper currency that is common to people. In a similar context, cryptocurrencies will also be but efforts would be required.
