Blockchain has gone far beyond the financial sector and cryptocurrency. In fact, forecasts suggest that spending on blockchain solutions will continue to grow in the coming years, reaching over almost $18 billion by 2024. Industries from insurance to healthcare are starting to use blockchain.

Here are the industries that could be transformed by blockchain or have its indelible impact in near future.
