Thanks to blockchain technology, 3D printers could become much more secure


As with technologies such as 3D printing or the world of drones, there are many interested people and even companies within the public and private sector, there is only to see their listing on the stock market, in the development and deployment of another type of technologies such as blockchain, same that there is after the landing of all those virtual currencies such as the well-known and valued, at least for the moment, Bitcoin.

Due precisely to the great security, already contrasted and highly tested, offered by blockchain technology, it is not surprising that little by little there are many researchers who seek to enter other sectors of the market such as 3D printing, which in the short term it is expected to be able to handle complex supply chains and several layers of payment, which and according to certain German scientists, thanks to blockchain could be much more robust while guaranteeing some fairer prices.

Germany bets on the arrival of blockchain technology to the world of 3D printing

On the other hand, we have to see the blockchain system within 3D printing as the ideal tool for integrating digital licenses within the continuous exchange of files to replicate a component in an original way. A solution that, as a detail, tell you that it was already officially presented last April, taking advantage of the celebration of the last Hannover Fair.

Similarly, the public and private sectors of Germany has recently decided to make new partnerships with blockchain. A very clear example is how, while the second largest bank in Germany plans to revolutionize supply chains with distributed technology, there are other companies related to the security sector, which have decided to transfer the information of their users to the government authorities for a search.
