The purpose of Blockchain technology is to create a distributed database network to store confidential data (especially ledgers, transactions, agreements) which can not be altered once it is stored in the blockchain. The data is verified and validated by the nodes in the network and so it is almost impossible for a malicious node to misuse the data.


Some of the Blockchain technology applications are:

  • Cryptocurrencies
  • IoT
  • Healthcare
  • Digital Identity
