Blockchain: what lies beneath?

What is Blockchain?

A ‘blockchain’ is simply an electronic ledger that records transactions and balances in a given system. The technology allows for efficient recordkeeping of the transfer of currency, assets, or information between multiple participants. This collection of records is verifiable by all blockchain members and represents a permanent, single version of truth, removing the need for a central authority for reconciliation.
