What is BlockChain: The blockchain is an ingenious invention that underpins digital currency (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, etc.). A blockchain is a decentralized, distributed and public digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers so that any involved record cannot be altered retroactively, without the alteration of all subsequent blocks. The technology allows digital information to be distributed, but not copied. That means each individual piece of data can only have one owner. In simple words, it is like a spreadsheet that is duplicated thousands of times across a network of computers and the network regularly updates this spreadsheet.
