Blockchain is a series of transactions recorded in Blocks, secured cryptographically. Blockchain has unique characteristics such as Immutable, Decentralized,, and Transparency. Users within Blockchain can Record Transaction in Blocks in a Immutable distributed ledger i.e. unchangeable once recorded/published. Another advantage of Blockchain is that it is Decentralized, which eliminates the dependency on a Trusted Third Party to facilitate the transactions. This enables the clients/users’ of the Blockchain to take ownership of the data they push on the network. Besides making the transactions, Blockchain also makes them more secure as each of those clients have their own copies of the transactions.
