Blockchain and Cryptocurrency insights
The Harvard Business Review defines a blockchain as "an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way." In general terms, a blockchain is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography. Concepts of blockchain are what actually drive our Bitcoins, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies. With the security of transactions getting increasingly sloppy, and more and more people going the 'crypto' way, cryptocurrencies are here to stay. The concepts of blockchain will surely help one become an expert in the field, which is sure to see a huge boom soon.
