Blockchain is an amazing technology with many use cases and application that can change the way we interact with industries such as commerce, heathcare, gaming, legal, real estate, finance, and any other industry that depends on databases, participants who may not trust each other, and need for auditability. Yet, before any comapany or project implements blockchain, they must first be solving a problem and this problem solving is crucial to product management.
