The popularity and demand for blockchain technology especially at the enterprise level have led to the creation of several blockchain as a service provider companies and startups that offer their blockchain expertise and deploy blockchain-based systems for different enterprises. These services have shot up in demand in the recent past as building a blockchain system from scratch is both expensive and time-consuming, thus deploying an already built system helps these enterprises into a smooth transition and saves a lot of time.
BaaS Could Accelerate Blockchain Adoption
Over the years governments and enterprises have realized that decentralized tech or blockchain is one of the most secure and transparent ways of record-keeping and thus more enterprises are jumping onto the blockchain bandwagon. However, discarding the age-old system and building a new one is not as easy as it seems, and thus BaaS companies come to the rescue. These companies have expertise in developing blockchain systems that could either be easily deployed and programmed to the need of the company or can be integrated into the existing system thus saving time and labor for the enterprises.
