Blockchain is being touted as the most disruptive invention since the internet itself. This year, it's likely that blockchain will quickly evolve from existing, theoretical buzzword to concrete tool.

Therefore, Bitcoin and Litecoin are working on blockchain technology now, banks are actively looking at the blockchain (in the autumn of 2016, Bank of America and Microsoft announced the beginning of the development of a financial blockchain platform).
The first real deal with real money also took place in the autumn of the same year - the Israeli start-up (Wave), the British Bank (Barclays) and the Irish dairy producer (Ornua) held a letter of credit for 100 000 dollars. And if earlier the process had taken a week or more because of the bureaucracy and verification of all documents, then thanks to cryptography and automated verification everything took about four hours.
