Blockchains link digital records – data blocks – using cryptography. This ledger technology promises to disrupt the economic landscape and facilitate trade by creating transparency and establishing trust through indelible records of transactions. While blockchain technology has become widely known as the underlying technology of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, it holds potential for many other applications.
