Blockchain is one of the most innovative technological marvels of the 21st century. It comprises of a list of records, called blocks, which are linked using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block known as a timestamp, in addition to transactional data (generally represented as a Merkle tree root hash). Blockchain has been solidly behind the rise of known cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. The technology has earned the reputation of totally secure given its lack of a centralized host or server. Instead, blockchains are decentralized, peer-to-peer networks.
Blockchain as an invention is typically attributed to Satoshi Nakamoto as part of the Bitcoin idea. It ideally enables the codes behind the program and enables programmers to contribute to its development with the source being verified with a higher degree of accuracy than in a conventional transaction.
Due to the rising popularity of the Blockchain and Cryptocurrency revolution (i.e. Bitcoin), the public has scrambled to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the technology. That is where renowned blockchain expert like Ernesto Lee comes in.
