Cryptocurrency is a big thing right now and my advice is to be very rigorous when investing in this industry. Cryptocurrency is used in every industry and here are some examples. Realestate applications of blockchain : Ubiquity-This Software-as-a-Service (Saas) blockchain platform offers a simpler user experience to securely record property information to ensure a clean record of ownership.
Logistics and supply blockchain cases : IBM Blockchain-Knowing the status and condition of every product on your supply chain from raw materials to distribution is critical. Blockchain for supply chains allows transparency with a shared record of ownership and location of parts and products in real time.
In life-and-death settings, the lack of reliable data and sluggish interfaces may prove devastating. The Essentia framework addresses all these issues by using a blockchain-powered system that will store clinically relevant patient data and which can be immediately accessed, regardless of geographical borders. Patient privacy is maintained on a secure decentralized network where access is granted to only those who are medically authorized and only for the duration needed.|Blockchain is now being used to support sustainable fishing. Illegally caught fish is an endemic problem within the industry, and distributed ledger technology provides a means of proving where fish were caught, processed and sold. This ‘net-to-plate’ chain allows inspectors to determine whether fish had come from regions notorious for human rights abuses or from countries that are affected by economic sanctions.

Most people know that cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin use blockchain technology, but what exactly is blockchain? If you imagine Bitcoin as a car, then blockchain would be the combustion engine; i.e. blockchain is the underlying technology that drives the system.
Although blockchain technology can sound confusing at first, it is actually pretty simple to get to grips with. Ultimately, it is a list of public records, also known as a public ledger, where transactions between parties are listed or stored. Each record, known as a ‘block’ within blockchain terminology, is secured using cryptography. If only time travel were possible then majority of people would wish to back in 2010 to buy bitcoins. A mere 10,000 rupees invested in bitcoins back then would have fetched you over mind boggling 330 crores by now! The world was stunned with such a phenomenal growth of bitcoins as a cryptocurrency. Keep reading this post as we will explain about bitcoin shortly. But how could such a currency grow stupendously on a global scale? The answer is Blockchain. Simple as it may sound there are huge mechanisms in place in making the technology work. The time spent by IBM global financing was reduced by 75% in solving financial disputes using Blockchain technology. Did you know that in international trade finance and remittances ICICI bank using Blockchain technology successfully executed transactions? Did you know SBI is using it in its KYC norms and smart projects? Did you know that Azure is already providing Blockchain as a service(BaaS)? And these are just three instances of the applications of Blockchain and the most obvious use case is bitcoin.
Here are some terms explained : Ashdraked: A situation where you lose all your money, more specifically when you lose all your money shorting Bitcoin.

Cloud Mining: Mining with remote processing power rented from companies operating outfits in countries like Iceland, where the electricity is abundant and cost-efficient, and the ambient temperature is cold year-round. Another term for this is mining contract.
And the latest crypto news : According to Cointelegraph Japan, the FSA has identified shortcomings in Fisco’s internal control systems – such as anti-money laundering measures – and found it to be insufficiently compliant with local laws and regulations.
