ABSTRACT. Blockchain technology has gone from prominence in a narrow circle of enthusiasts to mass insanity and frustration. The time has come to take a look at the trends in the development of technology and soberly assess the capabilities of the blockchain after the hype has stopped. Now blockchain finds application in areas such as financial transactions, user identification, or the creation of cybersecurity technologies. Despite the fact that blockchain technology is reliable and supportive, the privacy issues and challenges of this technology cannot be left out.
