Q: What areas might blockchain be applied to?
A: First, blockchain could be applied to better protect communication privacy and security, because the existing internet and communication technology system of storing all data on servers is not foolproof.
While providing the same user experience, blockchain can better protect the privacy of users. It will ensure that when you chat with others, you don't have to worry about your chat information being leaked or intercepted by anyone.
The application of blockchain to communication requires the deployment of the internet of things equipment on a certain scale. Yet at this stage, the procurement and deployment costs of IoT equipment are relatively high. In addition, the lack of a unified technical standard and implementation plan are also problems.
Second, blockchain could be used in wireless edge computing. Edge computing is a typical distributed computing technology that processes data at a location close to the terminal of an IoT device. For example, the functioning of air conditioners, water heaters and refrigerators and security cameras can be coordinated through edge computing, ensuring optimal energy saving and service status even when the cloud server is not connected.
