In this interview with the head of client strategy for blockchain developer Very, we take a look inside the growing popularity of blockchain development and how this technology can make an impact beyond Bitcoin.
A blockchain is a technology for storing distributed records in a cryptographically secure way. The records to be included in each new block are broadcast to all nodes in the network to be verified and packaged together. This block is chained to the previous one with a cryptographic hash function which prevents tampering and ensures consensus amongst all nodes on the network. The most popular use for the technology is as a ledger for digital currency.
