I was made to understand that blockchain indeed is expensive (here)

I understand the importance of blockchain, but we have been used to a system where the end user is given less burden to use the product.

will this not be a hinderance to take blockchain based products on higher scale?

Question2: will it make any difference if we use a private blockchain?

It is not recommended to use blockchain for everything. It should be used mainly to transfer values : coins, assets of all kinds, etc.

For everything else can be used any decentralized storage system like : ipfs (http://ipfs/io), swarm (https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/wiki/Swarm---distributed-preimage-archive) and so on.

  • It is subjective, that is why the question fell under open ended category.
