Blockchain Growth

Companies interested in digital transformation are developing innovative processes to integrate blockchain into their existing business models and investment models. Global business executives have experienced that despite its vast and still untapped potential, blockchain technology has not caught up with the mainstream audience yet.

In essence, blockchain is an enhanced and secured version of the internet which provides an incorruptible and smooth upkeeping experience of economic transactions and other such data of incomprehensible value.

Blockchain Basics

A basic understanding of blockchain reveals that blockchain technology is a way of documenting information and data, that can be of any form, ranging from transactions to messages, games or even online trading shops. The execution models of blockchain are based on usage of multiple systems to form a network, wherein such systems are in constant sync to store data. Since the data is stored across multiple data servers that form the network, there is no central point and the whole platform is decentralized. The decentralization aspects of blockchain make it exceptionally immune to hacking and other such security scares. Hence, the blockchain network is known as a P2P (Peer to Peer) network. In use, a P2P network ensures that even if one data entry point or server is lost or damaged, the data stays safe in the form of multiple copies in other systems.

Blockchain Organization

Blockchain, as the name implies, operates by organizing data in blocks, whereby the P2P network allows for the formation of linking to form chains of data servers. This distributed data is in the form of ledgers, which possess various key features, such as, decentralization of data, wherein the data is spread across a network of systems rather than on one central computer. Additional features of blockchain include transparency, wherein the whole ledger of transactions is easily accessible for anyone to verify. Also, all blockchain transactions are duly recorded, wherein the information stored is in the form of proper records with timestamps.
