Capitalize on the Impact of Blockchain With These 2 ETFs | ETF Trends

Businesses shouldn’t fear the blockchain. The underlying technology of digital assets like cryptocurrency is set to transform businesses, but in a positive way.

It’s easy to dismiss it as some newfangled approach to business, but that’s what many thought when the internet first arrived. The blockchain could have that same impactful result that spans across all business sectors.

“If you think Blockchain technology won’t impact your business, think again,” a Forbes article succinctly explains.

“From accounting to business processes, the growing unanimity among industry executives is that blockchain is likely to influence every significant area of work – and the change is already starting,” the article adds further. “In fact, some estimates found that blockchain could add $1.77 trillion to the international economy by 2030.”
