What is Blockchain?

 

Blockchain is a paradigm shift that fundamentally revolutionizes the way consumers and businesses transmit, process and secure data. It is as much a transformation as the inception of the internet, the change from snail mail to email. It will redefine how we manage supply chains, maintain business transactions and exchange financial assets for decades to come.

 

Blockchain is a digital ledger – a continuously growing list of records – that is kept over time, decentralized and secured using cryptography. Data is distributed across a large, distributed, incorruptible network of computers, allowing us to interact with stored data in real-time, directly without intermediaries and without relying on conventional, proprietary, closed and hard-to-control IT infrastructures. Blockchain is providing an independent, tamper-proof, transparent new platform to securely store, transmit and process sensitive and valuable data.

 

Currently, the most well-known use case of blockchain is cryptocurrency, however, the number of applications and the potential impact of blockchain technology is enormous.  

Blockchain Beyond Cryptocurrency

Blockchain is poised to disrupt virtually every industry, including but not limited to:

  • Medicine and Health Care
  • Finance and Banking
  • Insurance
  • Internet of Things (IoT) and Networking
  • Digital Advertising
  • Cyber Security
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Forecasting
  • Cloud Computing
  • Government
  • Retail
  • Real Estate
  • Publishing
  • Non-Profit
  • Energy

With the flexibility of blockchain, we are one step closer to a world of efficient data access and secure transactions, making intermediaries - that inevitably introduce vulnerabilities and dependencies but are necessary in conventional transaction models – obsolete.

AMD: Leading Technology Combination for Blockchain

Blockchain algorithms require compute platforms, PCs and servers – more specifically CPUs and GPUs to run on. AMD is in a unique position to offer the best combination of CPU and GPU technologies to make blockchain transactions increasingly faster and more secure. ​

 

We are working with existing ecosystem partners to bring blockchain compute solutions to market for a large variety of use cases and exploring opportunities with new and innovative platforms using blockchain.
