The tech sector is looking at new uses for blockchain, and information security is one area that holds promise. Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies are making their way from the dark alleys of SilkRoad and AlphaBay into the mainstream.
Suddenly, investing in these digital currencies has become something of a fad, with hedge fundsand Wall Street pundits getting on board.
As someone who works in IT and sees both the behavior of customers and platforms, there is a clear trend — though anecdotal — of more interest over both new cryptocurrencies and consequently, matters that relate to safety and privacy.

Suddenly blockchain is being suggested as a solution for everything from farming to climate change, and from real estate to VR content marketing.
