The global blockchain finance market — encompassing public and private blockchains, trading, payments, settlements and asset management — is well-positioned to grow into a $79.3B market by 2032.

A report by Allied Market Research revealed that the blockchain finance market players are heavily exploring collaborations and acquisitions as a top strategy. COVID-19 pandemic-induced disruptions in traditional finance, coupled with the promise to reduce operational costs set the stage for the mainstreaming of the digital ecosystem.

In 2023, the public blockchain sub-segment represents the lion’s share of the type of blockchains being used worldwide. Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) are some of the prominent crypto ecosystems that use public blockchains. Public blockchains come with numerous upsides, as explained in the report:

“Public blockchains leverage significant computational power, making them ideal for maintaining large distributed ledgers associated with financial transactions. These factors are anticipated to boost the blockchain finance market.”

When it comes to the applications of blockchain finance, cross-border payments and trading are two of the largest sub-segments, driven by the rising demand from individuals, enterprises, merchants, industries and international development groups.
