The legalization of cryptocurrency encourages businesses and investors to invest more in blockchain technology. Furthermore, it also encourages the market players to make more efforts to improve their services to gain a competitive edge. These efforts made by the companies are expected to make blockchain technology more effective and efficient in the near future. DeFi is an emerging financial technology based on blockchain, which reduces the control banks have on financial services and money. The growing strategic initiatives in the decentralized finance space are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in July 2021, Square, a payment company, announced that it is launching a business dedicated to DeFi using bitcoin.

This initiative is expected to help the company strengthen its market position. The acceptance of cryptocurrency as a payment by companies, such as PayPal and Xbox, is expected to drive market growth. Various restaurants are entering into partnerships with cryptocurrency solution providers to provide cryptocurrency-based payments to their customers. For instance, in August 2021, Bakkt Holdings, LLC, a digital asset marketplace, announced its partnership with Quiznos, a Quick-service Restaurant (QSR), to launch its physical location pilot. This pilot enabled the customers of Quiznos to pay with bitcoin at select locations.

Various companies are making efforts to integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities with blockchain to enhance their offerings, creating new opportunities for market growth. For instance, in September 2019, Signzy Technologies Private Ltd., a RegTech startup, announced its partnership with Primechain Technologies, a blockchain technology provider. The partnership was aimed toward developing AI-enabled smart banking solutions for financial institutions and banks. This smart banking solution integrated AI and blockchain technologies to digitalize and automate back-office operations.
