Blockchain Specialist course

When the Blockchain Technology first appeared almost a decade ago as the backbone of Bitcoin, a leading cryptocurrency, it offered a novel way to cut out the financial middleman. However, in the last couple of years, business leaders across globe are realizing the potential of Blockchain technology and how it can do much more than record monetary transactions. This realization has lately blossomed into an interesting and often bewildering array of startup companies, initiatives, corporate alliances, and research projects.

What is Blockchain?

A blockchain can be described as an append-only transaction ledger or financial details. This means that the ledger can be written onto with new information, but the previous information, stored in blocks, cannot be edited, adjusted or changed. It is accomplished by using cryptography to link the contents of the newly added block with each block before it, such that any change to the contents of a previous block in the chain would invalidate the data in all blocks after it.
