Retailers benefit from blockchain technology in four ways: lower costs, quicker payments, increased transparency, and improved security. Costs are lowered as a result of the decentralized nature of transaction automation and application interoperability, which results in the eradication of administration. Rapid payments are possible because blockchains do not require a centralized infrastructure. No system is immune to external breaches of its security standards; but, blockchain’s distributed nature gives an unprecedented level of confidence. Transparency is provided through blockchain’s immutability and public availability.
