What is Blockchain anyway?
"Blockchain is a technology that allows individuals and companies to make instantaneous transactions on a network without any middlemen (like banks). Transactions made on blockchain are completely secure, and, by function of blockchain technology, are kept as a record of what happened. Strong computer codes ensure that no record of a transaction on blockchain can be altered after the fact."
Some Helpful Definitions:
"A chain of blocks. Those blocks represent data, held all together in a specific order."
"A ledger - Each block of data represents some new transaction on the ledger, whether that means a contract or a sale or whatever else you’d use a ledger for."
"A blockchain is a record of transactions."
