A blockchain is a data structure in which each block is linked to the next in a time-stamped chronological manner. Each block is cryptographically linked to the others. This is a global distributed ledger that contains an immutable public record of financial transactions. Every new record will be reviewed across the distributed network before being saved in a block. All information is verifiable and auditable once it is deposited on the ledger, but it cannot be edited. It will be an underestimation to say that Blockchain Technology is one of the most inventions of this 21st century. More people are considering that the decentralization and translucence that comes along with blockchain technology have the prospective to jiggle multiple industries to its very staple. This article reconnoiters different blockchain applications and their deployment approaches. In other facets, Multichain is a platform for the creation and distribution of private blockchains, either within or between organizations. Likewise, there are many more blockchain applications than just cryptocurrency, and they can unsettle way more sectors than just the finance sector. We intentionally avoided showing the Blockchain’s impact on the banking sector to keep the list as non-fintech as possible. Smart contracts are well customary as the greatest enabling technology for blockchains. With them, a blockchain ecosystem becomes self-governing, open, consent, and credible. It is through a compilation of smart contracts that blockchains can operate without human intervention. The smart contracts are established to deploy at the predefined blockchain nodes. They can be entreated by the call-backs either from the blockchain system, the other smart contracts, or the participants’ information systems. Usually, blockchain operations and application-related rules can be predetermined as smart contracts. The use cases and their real-world functions differ, but the benefits derived from using the technology remain unchanged: immutability, transparency, redundancy, and security.
