Blockchain technology has the potential to enhance data security and data governance. Its decentralized nature ensures data security and integrity, and prevents data leaks and abuse. In terms of data governance, blockchain technology can optimize data standardization, quality management, and classification, providing transparency and credibility for data decision-making[1]. Blockchain technology has broad applications in mobile applications, healthcare, and the Internet of Things (IoT), enabling verifiable and fair distributed machine learning. However, blockchain technology still faces challenges such as performance bottlenecks, security issues, and privacy protection. Further technological innovation and research are needed to address these challenges and find better solutions.
