Why You Should Attend Asia Blockchain Summit 2020?
Terms “Blockchain” and “Bitcoin” are often mixed and misunderstood by people who are unfamiliar with the cryptocurrency industry. Many think that blockchain and bitcoin are the same things, but the truth is that they are not. The future of cryptocurrency is here.
But, what actually is blockchain?
According to Wikipedia, a blockchain, initially, blockchain, is a growing list of records, called blocks linked using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data (generally represented as a Merkle tree).
What was the reason for creating blockchain?
Blockchain is the brainchild of “Satoshi Nakamoto.” Whether it was one person or a group of people using this pseudonym, it is unknown yet. Blockchain was originally devised for the digital currency, bitcoin. But, the tech community has found many other uses for blockchain.
Basically, blockchain is a new method of record keeping. It is a distributed ledger, to keep records of transactions. It is a decentralized system to keep records that aims to replace the centralized, traditional record-keeping system.
It might be hard to understand how blockchain works, but there are ways to get familiar with it, and the best way to do so is by being part of summits where experts take place.
