Blockchain was conceptualized by Satoshi Nakamoto. Blockchains are a new data structure in which data is replicated at every node on the network to create permanence and resilience. There are 600+ digital currencies and 70+ digital assets built on platforms such as Ethereum and Counterparty. The Blockchain ecosystem includes exchanges, wallet providers, payment service providers, blockchain platform providers, consortiums such as R3 CEV.
Blockchain works on decentralized platforms. Transparency, elimination of third parties, cost reduction, micro-payments, cryptographic security, and immutability are the key benefits of blockchain solutions. Blockchain is expected to be one of the key pillars of digitization across various industrial verticals. The financial sector is the pioneer in exploring and adopting blockchain solutions for smart transactions. Healthcare, insurance, networking, and transportation are some of the other sectors focusing on blockchain. The study provides an in-depth analysis of the automotive key functional areas (such as smart manufacturing, supply chain logistics, retailing and leasing, mobility, connected living, and IoT) that can use blockchain technology. Blockchain will disrupt the automotive industry and will create growth opportunities, monetization avenues, and facilitate digital transformation.
