"Blockchains give us resilient, truly distributed peer-to-peer systems and the ability to interact with peers in a trustless, auditable manner," said Devetsikiotis in his article.

Devetsikiotis, whose research focuses on The Internet of Things, looks forward to the continued integration of blockchains in the IoT domain, which contains over 20 billion devices.  

"[This integration] will cause significant transformations across several industries, bringing about new business models and having us reconsider how existing systems and processes are implemented."
