Blockchain Technology- Concepts, Benefits, Working and Career

Blockchain is sometimes referred to as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), makes the history of any digital asset unalterable and transparent. Blockchain is ideal for delivering information because it provides immediate, shared and completely transparent information stored on an immutable ledger. 

WHAT IS BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY?

Blockchain is a system of recording information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack or cheat the system. Blockchain is a type of DLT in which transactions are recorded with an immutable cryptographic signature called a hash. A Blockchain is a type of database. Different types of information can be stored on a Blockchain but the most common use so far has been as a ledger for transaction. 

TYPES OF BLOCKCHAIN

  • Public Blockchain  
  • Private Blockchain 
  • Consortium Block chain 
  • Hybrid Blockchain

HOW DOES BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY WORK

Blockchain consists of 3 important concept : 

  1. Blocks  
  2. Nodes 
  3. Minors  

Blocks : Every chain consists o multiple blocks. 

Minors: Create new block on the chain through a process called mining  

Nodes: Every node has it’s own copy by the Blockchain. 

A Blockchain is a growing list of records, called blocks that are linked together using cryptograph. Blockchains are typically managed by peer to peer network for use as a publicly distributed ledger.
