What is a Blockchain? 2017-02-17T20:22:23+00:00

A Blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a continuously-growing list of records called blocks. Each block contains a timestamp and a link to a previous block. The data in a block cannot be altered retrospectively. In addition, all records and blocks are confirmed by the network participants so all parties can agree on the shared dataset where no single party has complete authority.

Blockchains are an example of a decentralized computing system that can power an array of applications.
