Handbook of Research on Blockchain Technology presents the latest information on the adaptation and implementation of Blockchain
technologies in real world business, scientific, healthcare and biomedical applications. The book's editors present the rapid
advancements in existing business models by applying Blockchain techniques. Novel architectural solutions in the deployment
of Blockchain comprise the core aspects of this book. Several use cases with IoT, biomedical engineering, and smart cities
are also incorporated. As Blockchain is a relatively new technology that exploits decentralized networks and is used in many
sectors for reliable, cost-effective and rapid business transactions, this book is a welcomed addition on existing knowledge.
Financial services, retail, insurance, logistics, supply chain, public sectors and biomedical industries are
now investing in Blockchain research and technologies for their business growth. Blockchain prevents double spending in financial
transactions without the need of a trusted authority or central server. It is a decentralized ledger platform that facilitates
verifiable transactions between parties in a secure and smart way.
