about the technology
A blockchain is a decentralized record, stored across numerous devices with no central control or authority. Copies of this shared database are constantly reconciled with one another, and records are cryptographically encoded to make them unchangeable. The result is a type of database that is at once transparent and publicly accessible, and where it is impossible to falsify or alter the historic data record. Initially hailed for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, recent blockchain platforms such as Ethereum and Hyperledger are opening up new applications for immutable public and private digital records management.
