How Blockchain Technology Works

The blockchain is a distributed ledger, a network of data records that are replicated and geographically disbursed at “nodes,” or physical data servers, to ensure permanence and reliability. When a transaction occurs between two parties, the details of that transaction are securely encrypted and packaged into a “block.” Participants use complex cryptographic methods to digitally sign the transaction to ensure its truthfulness, and the block is added to the copy of the ledger stored at the nearest node. Various consensus algorithms are…
