Re: Transactions and modeling
My vote would be Security & FinTech first and probably healthcare last only because the system is a massive machine is change is slow to come. The hold up for all of them?  Those pesky regulators.

A potential gate-crasher?  Blockchain used for marketing.

Re: Transactions and modeling
@vnewman I think we're going to see blockchain used in a number of different situations. Fintech, healthcare, security and many others. 

It's still years away, but the technology has a number of useful applications. Cybersecurity is just one of those.

Re: Transactions and modeling
@vnewman it makes sense to do that to get that extra level of security. In general, so much we rely on, hackable passwords and security questions that have answers that can usually be found from Facebook information, really don't stand up well.

Re: Transactions and modeling
Even though it isn't the only application, FinTech's future is the blockchain - if the recent Patent App is any indication, soon we will see blockchain used in trading, clearing and settling securities transactions - a process that is well-overdue for a makeover.

Re: Transactions and modeling
My firm provides consulting services in the area of financial technologies and navigating the legal waters that govern them.  Blockchain is quickly becoming an game-changer in the way finanacial transactions are done.  Once our clients have experience using a blockchain they typically become interested in other ways of employing the technology in other areas of their business.  Here is a link that sums up the various applications nicely:

> It also will allow data transparency, making sure that data is not tampered with.

That is something I can do already today with out blockchain. A device just signs the data that it sends. So what does blockchain add?
