Blockchain Technology & The Industries Being Effected

In 1991 Blockchain technology started & allowed for digital timestamps to be a thing. Blockchains are a chain of blocks that contains information, data, hash, and the hash from the previous block & the new way to manage trust.

Hash: The fingerprint that identifies the content of the block

I am sure you have heard of Bitcoin, Bitcoin blocks store info from a transaction:

Sender

Reciever

Amount of transaction

The first block of a chain is called, genesis. Changing a block will make all the following blocks invalid which is why it is such a smart way to hold authenticity and privacy. When you join a blockchain you will get a copy of the full blockchain. When a new block is created, it is sent to everyone in the peer network & checked for tampering. It is pretty close to impossible to be able to tamper with a block and get away with it.
