Blockchain technology has for the longest time been associated with cryptocurrencies.

It is for this reason that the likes of Google, IBM and Microsoft have been exploring how to use the technology to enhance their services.
Microsoft is currently exploring how to use the technology to develop financial services and chain offerings as part of its Azure cloud. IBM on its part maintains that digital ledger technology is an enterprise game changer having already secured positions to utilize the technology in the financial markets.
