More about blockchain technology
Blockchain removes the need for a trusted third party or intermediary to validate transactions, it instead uses a decentralized consensus mechanism to agree on the validity of transactions. It provides security and integrity through cryptographic encoding of all transactions. And it provides immutability, as all data written into the blockchain is extremely difficult to change back. The technology provides significant opportunities to simplify, speed up, and reduce the cost of transactions of all kinds.
