Business Value of Blockchain

From a business standpoint, a blockchain can be defined as a platform where peers exchange value / electronic cash without the need for a centrally-trusted arbitrator.

For example, for cash transfers, banks act as a trusted third party. In financial trading, a central clearinghouse serves as an arbitrator between two trading parties.

Disintermediation allows blockchain to be a decentralized consensus mechanism where no single authority is in charge of the database.

Decentralization provides quicker transaction speeds, cost savings, and greater trust.
