Back then, when the internet was introduced, not many businesses understood what it meant until the web came along to clarify matters by adopting the technology and using it to share, move, publish, and visualize content. It is through this improvement, that everyone began to see great potentials and possibilities with the internet. Today, many business people are using the internet to enhance various economic processes through communication, eCommerce, social media, and in many other ways.
However, there seems to be a looming revolution in the modern technology landscape particularly with the arrival of the blockchain. Now, it is as if the new technology has come to improve on the already established innovations brought about by the internet. But while it’s been developed to be on par with the web, it may interest you to know that it doesn’t really require the World Wide Web to evolve. It is based on these principles that developers are seeking to integrate the tech with mobile app development. But of what benefit will this bring to the industry?
Improving app development with blockchain integration
Currently, the world is experiencing some uncommon transformations in the way and manner various processes are performed, thanks to the overwhelming contributions of mobile app development. Virtually everyone owning a smartphone or other smart devices is benefitting from the fulfilling mobile moments. In a bid to improve mobility, mobile app developers are looking for and adopting various ways through which they can effectively better the lives of their customers.
Basically, they are doing this to boost user retention and obtain a better return on investment (ROI)
with app development. But now that users are becoming more and more tech-savvy, developers and development agencies are now working harder to up the ante so as to be able to satisfy consumers by meeting their various expectations. One prominent way by which this can be well achieved is by integrating peer-to-peer transaction capabilities into the app development process.
It is obvious that today’s mobile users are tired of making purchases through apps that require third-party services or the use of physical actions. Even the act of making in-app purchases, to them, is old school. The successful implementation of cryptocurrencies (particularly Bitcoin) has caused a kind of enlightenment that has got most app users yearning for mobile applications integrated with efficient peer-to-peer transaction capabilities. With this, people will no longer need to use third-party services to perform transactions online.
Aside from showing great potentials in improving mobile app economy, many app developers and app development companies
believe that everyone (app users) stands to gain more amazing opportunities aimed at effectively revolutionizing processes through blockchain tech adoption. Below are several ways mobile app developers are implementing blockchain integration to enhance various development processes.
Improve financial transaction
One of the most popular areas of business that is tipped to benefit maximally from blockchain introduction is eCommerce. Currently, there are quite a good number of companies in the eCommerce industry that are making huge waves in the financial sector. Companies like Amazon, AliExpress, eBay etc. are now on top of their game, thanks to mobile app development. However, it is sad to know that many of the businesses in this sector are not making good use of their potentials due to certain constraints with payment.
This is why developers are beginning to consider adopting the use of blockchain technology with mobile app development which will help to improve financial transactions and also enable those operating in the industry expand their reach by providing more accessible and tailored services to the growing population of consumers.
Improve gaming technologies
In recent times, there has been an overwhelming increase in high-tech games that could involve players to interact with other players, participate in real-time communications, perform transactions, and get involved in other real-life events. It is good to notice how mobile app development has contributed immensely to improving user experience through the development of these exhilarating games. While this has led to an increased retention rate, many app developers have also had an opportunity to also benefit from this system of integration.
With blockchain incorporated into the mobile gaming world, it would now be easy for players around the world to not only communicate effectively among themselves but also transact business together right from their respective gaming platforms. Without making physical contact, the sales and purchase of virtual goods for the purpose of gaming can be done between players without any form of intrusion from a third-party regulation body.
Advance social media engagement
The use of social media for business growth and development has always been part of most business processes. Basically, the technology has helped to provide various effective channels by which businesspeople can reach a target audience, interact with them, and get them engaged in using their product or service. It is interesting to know that mobile app developers have always and are still playing great roles in improving social media engagement.
Now, with the coming of the blockchain technology
, developers are seeking to improve social media engagement by developing blockchain-enabled apps that will enable users within a particular community get rewarded with coins (cryptocurrencies) for performing simple tasks such as participating in a survey, sharing and promoting products with friends, etc. Users can either choose to exchange the coins for fiat money or use them later inside the application.
Integrating blockchain into mobile app development will not only help to protect user anonymity during the course of any transaction within the network but can also help to effectively secure the content of the transaction performed. With blockchain integration in mobile application development, mobile users will be able to effectively communicate on an open standard platform with other users on the network via a decentralized database technology sitting right on their mobile devices. While this has been a long time coming, it is, however, interesting to know that the technology is now here and has already begun seeing the light of day. Back
