What is a Blockchain? In October 2018 NIST, the national institute of standards and technology, introduced its definition of “Blockchain.”

Blockchains are tamper evident and tamper resistant digital ledgers implemented in a distributed fashion (i.e., without a central repository) and usually without a central authority (i.e., a bank, company, or government).

Back in 2008 the concept of a blockchain was combined with several other technologies and computer science concepts to create today’s modern-day cryptocurrencies — electronic cash that is protected through cryptographic mechanisms instead of centralized authorities and of course the most obvious example of this is Bitcoin.

The Bitcoin blockchain is stored, maintained and collaboratively managed by a distributed group of participants. This, along with several cryptographic mechanisms help ensure the blockchain is resilient and cannot be altered or modified.
