What is blockchain technology?

Blockchain is simply a ledger or a database. It can be a database of virtually any recordable information. In simple words, blockchain store data in “blocks” and “chain” them together to form a cohesive, unbroken record of that particular information.


Why use a blockchain?

Blockchain technology offers new tools for authentication and authorization in the digital world that prevent the need for numerous centralized administrators. As a result, it facilitates the creation of new digital relationships. By formalizing and securing new digital relationships, the blockchain revolution is posed to create the backbone of a layer of the internet for transactions and interactions of value.


What is a distributed ledger?

Distributed Ledgers are a dynamic form of media. They have properties and capabilities that go far beyond static paper-based ledgers. A distributed ledger is a database held and updated independently by each participant or node in a large network. The distribution is unique. Records are not communicated to different nodes by a central authority. They are instead independently constructed and held by every node. Every single node on the network processes every transaction, coming to its own conclusions and then voting on those conclusions to make certain the majority agree with the conclusions.


Blockchain Crowdfunding

Blockchain crowdfunding is set to be a game changer. It decentralizes the funding model and works by allowing start-ups to create their own digital currencies and sell them. Further, it allows to raise funds from early investors. The investors have the possibility to make money if the value of their cryptographic shares increases. It removes any intermediaries between the backers and the start-up. It has the potential to breakthrough new blockchain platforms as it will give the blockchain community a new way to fund its own projects. It suits the anarchistic blockchain enthusiasts as well, hence allowing them to avoid traditional funding methods.
