  • Individuals cannot share the data between themselves securely and efficiently.
  • Databases are susceptible to hacking, while blockchain is a set of highly encrypted data, which would need a lot more computer work to break.
  • They lack an immutable audit trial, which means that its logs (i.e., what was happening with the data) can be changed. This is practically impossible on a public blockchain ledger.
