The new administration's limited expertise in the technology sector leaves room for lots of innovation from industry experts. There is a huge opportunity for the blockchain technology to transform multiple sectors (boosting GDP and overall economic growth by double digits) especially as the Trump administration looks to bring a ""business like"" focus to Washington.
Areas that ripe for transformation using blockchain are:

1. Government procurement, contracts and overall paperwork
2. Veterans Administration - especially the bureaucracy related to the healthcare of our war heroes
3. Small Business Sector - especially access to lower cost of capital, crowd funding and global supply chains
4. Banking the under-banked
