Using Dynatrace AI based Monitoring to Ensure Blockchain Performance

The explosion of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency has been a proving ground for Blockchain transactions.  Blockchain is a constantly growing list of records called blocks, which are connected and secured using cryptography (1).  Blockchains provide permanent verifiable means of recording transactions between two parties.   Serious actors in Finance, eCommerce and IT are massively investing in and building out Blockchain frameworks.  Blockchain by its very nature requires tremendous processing power and network conversations with actors exchanging blocks.  There has not been a lot of ...
