How Blockchain Technology Works in Layman’s English — Infographic

If you aren’t living on the Mars, you surely would have come across the word “blockchain technology” at least for once. Agreeably, you are not so techie-minded, I will take it like that — but you must have heard about cryptocurrency, or about some of its babies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, DASH, Doge, REDD, STEEM, and the soon to hit the market Dascoin, etc. I can see you are nodding to that… :)

That’s cool.

It is cool in the sense that, your knowledge about it makes my work today much easier. As much as I’d have loved to make you understand what I’m trying to drive at, your lack of proper information about the subject matter would further make the educating process difficult for me and for you.

It is like a database or say, a registry of data.

You can go here to read them, but today, I just want to quickly share these two powerful infographic picture I came across. They are worth sharing because they carry great amount of information about this technology.

Read on and enjoy.
