Understanding the Blockchain Technology
Blockchain is the technology that underlies the world’s current financial system, allowing individuals to trade across international borders without the use of a conventional currency or bank. A few years ago, it was not possible to trade any sort of currencies at all. But, thanks to this technology, anyone from anywhere can trade any currency from anywhere at any time – something that has radically changed the way the market functions. This article will explain what is involved with using this technology to secure private money in your own back account.
In order to get a good understanding of the workings of the Blockchain, you will need to understand the two main parts of the system: the miners and the network. With a little bit of technical jargon, you would probably know that the miners are people who facilitate the secure transfer of transactions across the ledger, which is a public database of all of the different transaction and ownership information of the system. Transactions occur via “chains” of transactions that have been laid out in the original transaction and ownership documents. The miners actually solve the problems that get them stuck in their position, and they do this by solving a mathematical equation that ensures that they will be able to continue if they are ever stuck in that position again.
The second part of the network is what makes the Blockchain work. The “blockchain” is essentially a ledger that is maintained by all users across the entire chain, so that every single transaction that has taken place is recorded. Transactions on the Blockchain are cryptographically secured by ensuring that the owner of the transaction has permission from a number of prior owners to transact the particular transaction. This permission is called a ” Segwit”, and it was introduced by the Core Developers during the Hong Kong Summit. As you can see, the core developers made a great deal of progress recently to make the most progress yet with this technology!
