Companies have had to scramble to adopt digital solutions as the coronavirus transforms the way we work now and in the future.
Although some may have been resistant to the sudden change, adopting new technologies has been essential to keeping businesses operating. Moving forward, the nuances companies have adopted since transitioning to working from home, such as Zoom calls and Slack channels, will likely become permanent fixtures. This will have a huge impact on the decentralized technology industry.
For years prior to the pandemic, it was clear that businesses were slowly inching towards a more remote workforce. Fast forward to present day and companies have been left with no other choice than to adopt these arrangements to stay productive.
The wide adoption of these new technologies has also highlighted their limitations. That is why it is essential to be able to tie together physical and digital identities, particularly as more professionals interactions happen online.
Additionally, more secure protocols need to be in place to keep private information safe when people work from home. Sensitive material can be put at risk when being transferred to a home office setting, so companies need to ensure that their storage systems are secure.
Although blockchain and decentralized technologies have long been predicted to be a significant part of the future of work, it is now happening at lightning speed.
