What Is Blockchain?
Blockchain is a peer-to-peer ledger system that allows peers to transact directly with each other eliminating the need for a central authority.
At its core, blockchain is a system for recording information about a transaction in a new decentralized way that makes it difficult or impossible to alter. These transactions are stored on sheets or blocks in a digital ledger that is shared among the participants of the network. Consensus on the transactions brings the peer-to-peer network into an agreement. Once agreed upon, these transactions are grouped in blocks, and blocks of transactions are recorded in the immutable ledger. Because of this agreement, trust becomes a fundamental component built into the system. Business models are changing from a centralized format, where one person or a group of people control the Ledger or the “truth”, to a decentralized approach where the group agrees on the truth.
