The Blockchain Technology is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value.” Blockchain is an Internet protocol and open source software platform for individuals, Business, developers and enthusiasts. It’s a platform which enables a digital and decentralized, distributed and public digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers so that the record cannot be altered retroactively without the alteration of all subsequent blocks and the collusion of the network. This allows the participants to verify and audit transactions inexpensively. A Blockchain database is managed autonomously using a peer to peer transaction network and payments.
