What is Blockchain?

Blockchain is an immutable public ledger which stores and timestamps transaction records or any other data.

In its most robust form, it's a decentralized system where copies of the ledger are kept on many personal computers (often referred to as nodes) spread throughout the world, fortifying the distributed ledger against corruption or malicious attacks (hackers, data/identity thieves, etc.). Combine this built-in high level of security with the fact that most ledgers transparently show the transactions within, and you have a tamper-proof, publicly verifiable system of records.

These inherent benefits of blockchain are being sought out by many industries on a global scale. The technology has the potential to drastically increase efficiency and data security while reducing such things as transaction costs, third-party influence/obstruction, lengthy settlement times, and much more.
