The global blockchain market by blockchain type is classified into the public, private and consortium. A private blockchain has an access control layer built into the protocol. This means the network members have control over who can join the network and who can participate in the consensus process of the blockchain. A private blockchain is a similar version to the existing infrastructure, wherein a centralized authority has the power to change the rules and transactions based on the need. The private blockchain is of significant interest to financial institutes and large companies. However, private blockchain requires dissimilar entities to consolidate and agree to a common set of standards through which it is estimated to operate.
On the other hand, a public blockchain is an ideal choice when a network needs to be decentralized. It is a completely transparent database of transactions on an open network, where a massively distributed ledger operates by having a large number of participants that can independently verify each transaction, resulting in trust by numbers. Bit coin is an example of an application of a public blockchain. However, the public blockchain segment dominated the global market, in terms of revenue, and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period, owing to its reliability.
