  2. • Blockchain is a distributed, decentralized digital ledger that is used to record transactions in a secure and transparent way. It was first introduced in 2008 by an individual or group of individuals using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto in a paper describing the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. The concept of blockchain is based on the idea of a continuously growing chain of blocks that contain information, with each block containing a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data. • This technology allows for secure and transparent transactions between parties without the need for intermediaries such as banks or other financial institutions. It achieves this through its decentralized nature, where multiple copies of the ledger are stored on a network of computers, ensuring that no single entity can control the data or manipulate it. • Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize many industries beyond finance, including supply chain management, healthcare, real estate, and more. It provides benefits such as increased security, transparency, and immutability, making it a valuable tool for businesses and governments around the world. However, the technology is still in its early stages, and there are challenges to be addressed, such as scalability and regulatory compliance.

  5. • Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that works by creating a shared digital ledger of transactions that are verified and recorded across a network of computers. The ledger contains a growing list of records or blocks that are linked together and secured using cryptographic techniques, hence the name "blockchain.“ • Here is a simplified overview of how blockchain technology works: 1. Transaction: A user initiates a transaction by creating a digital record of it, which includes details like the sender, receiver, amount, and timestamp. 2. Verification: The transaction is then broadcast to a network of computers, which includes nodes or participants who verify and validate the transaction using a consensus mechanism. 3. Block Formation: Once verified, the transaction is added to a block, along with other transactions that have been recently validated. Each block is linked to the previous one using cryptographic techniques, creating an unbroken chain of blocks, hence the name "blockchain.“
  6. 4. Mining: To add a block to the blockchain, nodes compete to solve a complex mathematical puzzle, called proof-of-work (PoW) or proof-of-stake (PoS), to validate the block. The first node to solve the puzzle is rewarded with cryptocurrency, and the new block is added to the blockchain. 5. Consensus: Once the block is added to the blockchain, all nodes in the network update their copies of the ledger to reflect the new transaction. 6. Security: The blockchain's distributed nature and cryptographic techniques make it highly secure and tamper-proof, as changing one block in the chain would require changing all the subsequent blocks, which is practically impossible. • This process is repeated every time a new transaction occurs, adding a new block to the blockchain and creating a growing ledger of verified and secure transactions.

  8. Building trust with Blockchain • Blockchain enhances trust across a business network. It’s not that you can’t trust those who you conduct business with its that you don’t need to when operating on a Blockchain network. Blockchain builts trust through the following five attributes: 1. Distributed: The distributed ledger is shared and updated with every incoming transaction among the nodes connected to the Blockchain. All this is done in real-time as there is no central server controlling the data. 2. Secure: There is no unauthorized access to Blockchain made possible through Permissions and Cryptography. 3. Transparent: Because every node or participant in Blockchain has a copy of the Blockchain data, they have access to all transaction data. They themselves can verify the identities without the need for mediators. 4. Consensus-based: All relevant network participants must agree that a transaction is valid. This is achieved through the use of consensus algorithms. 5. Flexible: Smart Contracts which are executed based on certain conditions can be written into the platform. Blockchain Network can evolve in pace with business processes.
  9. Benefits of Blockchain • There are several benefits of blockchain technology, including: 1. Security: Blockchain technology provides a secure way to store and transfer data. Once data is stored on the blockchain, it cannot be altered without consensus from the network, ensuring the integrity of the data. 2. Transparency: Blockchain technology offers transparency in transactions as every transaction on the blockchain is recorded and can be viewed by anyone on the network. This increases accountability and reduces the risk of fraud. 3. Decentralization: Blockchain technology is decentralized, which means there is no central authority controlling the network. This makes the network more resilient to attacks and provides greater trust in the system.
  10. 4. Efficiency: Transactions on the blockchain can be processed quickly and at a lower cost compared to traditional methods. This is because there are no intermediaries involved in the process. 5. Traceability: Blockchain technology enables the tracking of transactions and assets on the network. This can be useful in industries such as supply chain management where it is important to track the movement of goods from one point to another. 6. Accessibility: Blockchain technology is accessible to anyone with an internet connection. This means that people who do not have access to traditional banking services can use blockchain-based financial services to send and receive money. 7.
