Blockchain is a technology for the reliable distributed storage of authentic records, where information is written "on top" of the information recorded earlier, and partly based on it. It does not have centralized control, and transactions are verified using P2P networks, coding and cryptography. Blockchain can be used to store records about real-life objects and events.
Blockchain is significantly different from other similar technologies due to its openness and reliability. Blockchain records cannot be faked, changed or deleted. At the same time, every record in blockchain can be easily checked and verified. People have already appreciated the unlimited possibilities offered by this advanced technology and are making attempts to use it for record-taking virtually in every area of life.
