JAKARTA, Indonesia, July 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The rapid development of information and telecommunications technology has become an inseparable part of people’s daily lives in the digital era. One of them is crypto assets that got much attention in Indonesia recently. However, behind the fame of crypto assets there is a technology which is the core for the operation of these digital assets known as blockchain.
