But this opinion of customers can be changed by employing blockchain in gamification industry.

By employing blockchain in gamification, customers are ensured with trust and reliability, as the data stored in the blockchain can never be altered.

This promotes an effective balance among its users. Additionally with blockchain’s chain of users, marketers can avail business contacts that can provide them with valuable insights.
