Blockchain: Steering Defense Industry into the Future
The genesis of internet and advancements in weapons and equipments has completely altered the face of warfare. Even though the defense industry has evolved drastically over the years, there is ample room for improvements, gradually shifting toward adopting blockchain integration. But how exactly can adopting blockchain contribute to enhance today’s defense technology? The biggest reason for this shift is the need for robust data to make better defense decisions. Inaccurate or manipulated data can have adverse effects on the dependability of decisions made in the defense industry. The accuracy and immunity of data provided by blockchain technology can put an end to this problem. Apart from that, Blockchain can minimize resource leakage, enable an efficient workflow and provide a secure platform for defense communication. In most cases, the militaries around the world are looking to bolster their defensive features with the help of blockchain development.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has begun its move toward the adoption of blockchain-based encrypted messaging, a service that is designed to be impenetrable against foreign attacks. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has also initiated the development of a cybersecurity architecture for a decentralized blockchain-based messaging application and is looking forward to commercializing its implementation in the real world. Internet users can reap immense benefits from the advancements in cryptography with guaranteed user data protection on decentralized social platforms, enabling greater security during cryptocurrency payments. With the world’s reigning military powers vigorously exploring further benefits of blockchain technology in the defense industry, its potential could also be realized on the public side as well.
