As per the latest IoT survey, about 75 percent of the Internet of Things industry considers adding blockchain technology to improve their performances. Following the latest Blockchain news, we read more about what the surveyed companies actually think.
The IT Industry analyst at Gartner Avivah Litan explained during the IoT survey that about ‘’75 percent of IoT technology adopters in the US have already adopted blockchain technology or plan to adopt it by the end of 2020 in more than 500 US companies.’’ Blockchain technology can create an improved and trusted environment for data transmissions between the virtual networks or devices while increasing the efficiency of such exchanges.
According to Litan, of the 75 percent of blockchain adopters 86 percent have already implemented both IoT and blockchain technology in multiple projects. The IoT companies want to integrate computing devices with digital and mechanical machines in order to avoid the human-to-computer and human-to-human interaction. For example, Apple Watch and Alexa are using these technologies in consumer goods and the technologies can also be used in the industrial, healthcare and military sectors.
The increased security and trust in the multiparty shared transactions are the top benefits when the companies combine the IoT technologies and blockchain as well, according to 63 percent of the survey respondents while 56 percent said the top benefit is an increase in business efficiency. However, Litan warned that the blockchain implementation related to the protocol changes could be very hard for long-lived IoT devices because of their relatively high volatility. Litan said:
“Some blockchain implementations struggle to scale to the transaction rates that can be generated by large numbers of connected things.’’
As previously reported, According to Joseph Lubin, blockchain technology is much more complicated than the internet and therefore will probably ‘’take a little longer’’ to develop. While talking to German Cointelegraph, Lubin explained how the blockchain technology works and is developing in a very similar way to the web since there are hundreds of projects that can be practically used for humans today.
Lubin continued by explaining how the distributed ledger technology will also be able to ‘’permeate society more than the Internet’’. The DLT will be able to bring us the decentralized internet but we will, of course, have to wait a little longer for the blockchain to develop on such a mass scale.
