Blockchain is usually said to be able to improve the security of data sharing. However, it also requires careful attention to issues such as where and how private keys are stored and used, mechanisms for establishing and modifying how distributed systems obtain consensus as well, as how to recover potential losses if hit by cyberattacks.
