In layman’s terms, a Blockchain is an array of data blocks. These blocks are associated with cryptographic methods. Now, each and every data block contains a batch of Bitcoin transaction information. This information is used to verify the transaction. If the information is valid then it creates the next block.

With the expansion of the data, the block formation starts and when linked together successfully, they form a chain known as the blockchain. Hence, it functions as a database that stores digital records. So from the National Defense and Security perspective, Blockchain can be used to protect the combat data, decrease military logistics costs, enhance network security protection, promote innovation in combat methods, and establish secure military intelligence, etc.

China in fact has been one of the early adopters of Blockchain and has been integrating military logistics with Blockchain technology from 2019. They even started a system of providing incentives and rewards for its employees and soldiers based on Blockchain. For those who were earlier reluctant to adopt the technology, are now showing signs of encouraging its adoption and the competition will undoubtedly increase the development of Blockchain adoption in all areas.  

Challenges Still Remain

Just like a coin has two sides, Blockchain also has its own challenges. In order to satisfy their own needs, the developers can write malicious code in the communications protocol. This may harm the National Security of the county. Not only this but also the Blockchain depend on cryptography to a very large extent. Since it doesn’t operate in a complete vacuum, it may bring many challenges for the military and the officials.
