Blockchain technology and its applications in the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) sector have attracted a lot of attention in the past few years, majorly due to its ability to transform existing industries’ foundations and business models. Presently, apart from cryptocurrency applications, the other major practical applications of Blockchain are still in the banking and financial sector; however, various companies and institutions are now rapidly developing Blockchain-based solutions to solve complex business problems. In general terms, Blockchain is a subset of a broader distributed ledger technology (DLT), and it combines three significant concepts – cryptography, smart contracts, and distributed ledger design. Distributed ledger technology (DLT) is a fast-emerging approach that records and shares data across various data stores/ledgers. DLT facilitates the recording, sharing, and synchronization of transactions and data across a distributed network of different network participants.

Blockchain can be classified into three major categories – public blockchains, federated blockchains or consortium blockchains, and private blockchains. Some examples of public blockchains are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, Dash, Litecoin, and Dogecoin, among others. Federated blockchains or consortium blockchains include R3 (Banks), EWF (Energy), B3i (Insurance), Corda, and others. Private blockchains’ examples include MONAX and Multichain. Private Blockchains allow companies to solve efficiency, security, and fraud problems in traditional financial institutions, but only at an incremental level. Due to this, private blockchains presently are not expected to revolutionize the traditional banking and financial system. However, public blockchains hold great potential to reshape the existing financial system by replacing most functions of financial institutions with software.
