Maybe this is the why blockchain market is expected to touch $7,683.7 million by 2022– according to a report by MarketsandMarkets. This figure was $241.9 million in 2016. The blockchain dichotomy has replaced the centralised computing model with its peer to peer interconnections, eliminating the cyber threats associated with organisations data.

The technology will open doors for circuit designers, microcontroller programmers, PLC designer, hardware designers, app developers, security experts, electrical and mechanical engineers. Improvement in IoT results in edge and fog computing like technology- creating job opportunity for blockchain and big data analytics experts. So why to limit yourself in this vast ocean of things, when you can grab all of it..!!

5). Security becomes a necessity:

This year has been nasty for few organisations like Under Armour, Rampant, US Universities etc., on the internet. Security has become the primary concerns of the companies running their operations over the internet.
