Blockchain technology is widely praised for its ability to serve the financial industry by processing transactions more efficiently and securely. Speaking towards that latter benefit, it could also assist in the software industry, according to a Forbes article.
Security hacks can certainly upend a business quickly. From compromised data to supply chain management issues, the need for software security is more integral as more businesses rely on technology to run their core operations.
“Blockchain can greatly improve the security of software, enabling software dependency controls that are automatic, tamper-proof and decentralized,” said Jason Gong of Firezone. “Events like the supply chain attack on NPM show the importance of software traceability to a company’s security posture. In the future, purchasers of software will look for in-depth dependency graphs, like the ingredients lists on your favorite snack.”
As the aforementioned reliance on technology grows, so will the need for security on a global scale. As such, blockchain provides exponential growth opportunities for investors looking to gain exposure to a sector that can grow with the changing times.
Getting Blockchain Exposure
Exchange traded fund (ETF) investors looking to gain exposure to the blockchain industry can do so with a fund like the Amplify Transformational Data Sharing ETF (BLOK). BLOK gives investors dynamic exposure to the sector using an active management strategy.
