Blockchain is one of the revolutionary technologies impacting different industries miraculously. It was introduced by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008, as part of a proposal for Bitcoin.

#### Bitcoin:

• The introduction of cryptocurrencies, specifically Bitcoin, has brought the concept of blockchain technology into the market.
• Bitcoin is a type of digital currency which can be used in the place of fiat money for trading.
• Bitcoin enabled an innovative platform for peer to peer transfer of value without any central authority and uses blockchain to maintain its public ledger of every single transaction.
• Bitcoins are continuously working on a model for autonomous decentralized application technology known as Blockchain.

#### What is BlockChain?

• Blockchain is a distributed immutable ledger of records of transactions or data that is managed by a cluster of computers not owned by any single entity.
• Each of these blocks of data is secured and bound to each other using cryptographic principles.
• Unlike traditional methods, blockchain enables peer to peer transfer of digital assets without any intermediaries.
• It is a distributed ledger that is completely open to anyone on the network. Once an information is stored on a blockchain network, it is extremely difficult to change or alter it.

#### Blockchain Technology supports:

• Speed Process
• Lowest Transaction Cost
• Provides Security, Trust and Transparency

#### Features of Blockchain

1. Decentralized: In a blockchain network no single person or group holds the authority of the overall network while everyone has the copy of distributed ledger with them.
2. Peer-to-Peer Network: Blockchain enables peer to peer transaction of digital assets without any intermediaries.
3. Immutable: In a blockchain, the immutability feature refers to the fact that any data once written on the blockchain network cannot be changed.
4. Tamper-Proof: In a blockchain, it becomes easier to detect tampering of any data. Blockchains are considered tamper-proof as any change in even one single block can be detected and addressed smoothly.
5. Enhanced Security: The blockchain network eliminates the need of central authority, as no one can change anything on the network for their benefit. Also, a high level of encryption ensures the security of the blockchain network.

That’s all I have and thanks a lot for reading. Please let me know if any corrections/suggestions. Please do share and comments if you like the post. Thanks in advance… 😉
