How does the blockchain technology work?

If you want to understand the working of blockchain technology, then first you must understand the meaning of the term blockchain. In simplest terms blockchain can be defined as a chain of blocks or a number of blocks connected in a chain.

Now when the meaning of the term blockchain is clear to you, you must have got a rough idea of how this technology works. If you are still pondering on it, then here are the few points that will clear your doubts.

  • A blockchain can be called as a record or ledger of the transactions.
  • With each transaction, a string of letters and numbers is generated which is called as the hash.
  • Each transaction is entered or time stamped on the blockchain according to the order of their occurrence. The order of the transactions is very important which makes it unable to manipulate.
  • The hash function which is generated not only contains the information of the current transaction but also of the previous transaction, therefore, the order is very important here.
  • There are many nodes or computers spread all around the world that checks these hash functions to make sure that nothing has changed.
  • If all the nodes approve a transaction than it is written into a block. And each block has the reference of the previous block and together they form a chain of blocks or blockchain.

The above listed points are only a few summarized points to make you understand the general working of the blockchain technology.

Thus, trading (the selling and purchase) of bitcoins has been escalating exponentially. In order to buy bitcoins people either directly transfer money from their banks or use their debit or credit card for purchases or use a payment portal for the transaction.
