Enterprise Blockchain News That Dominated November - build on Ethereum!


Enterprise blockchain in the banking and financial services has crossed the chasm in 2019.

Some of them might be willing to sell that type of data, but that’s not sustainable business planning. A possible solution will be to leverage an Internet-of-Things (IoT) device that can be plugged into the car ports.
