Blockchain technology is no longer limited to cryptocurrencies, it’s being adopted by a myriad of organizations for different applications: from executing contracts to providing identity management.

There’s a huge problem on the horizon though, and that’s the upcoming EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This law says that users must be able to demand that their personal information is deleted under any circumstances.

It remains to be seen if and how blockchain technology will adjust to these new EU rules.
