Blockchain technology (BT) supports the existence of cryptocurrency. Therefore, the growing investments in financial technologies (FinTech) are providing a significant momentum to the global BT market. FinTech companies are allocating sizeable funds for the development of new and innovative payment solutions. The increasing trend of digitization is paving way for digital wallets, which in turn is leading to the greater implementation of BT. Moreover, the disintermediation of banking services is augmenting the market. 

The rising concerns regarding network privacy and security are, however, hampering the growth of the market. In addition, the existing technology has issues with system configuration, which induces skepticism among end users and thus, limits its widespread adoption. Furthermore, the lack of awareness regarding this technology is negatively impacting the growth of the market.

AI enables investors to be better informed while making a decision about their financial plans and customers to have easy access to comparative information. The increasing implementation of IoT is also expected to augur well for the growth of the market in the near future.
