In its list of "Forbes Blockchain 50" released on Monday, the magazine pointed out that "global corporations are embracing the technology underlying cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin to speed up business processes, increase transparency and potentially save billions of dollars".

That eliminates the inconvenience of Korea's 20-year-old identity verification system, which can require a tedious signup process for each bank", the magazine wrote.
