What is blockchain?

The blockchain is an advanced form of Database storage system, which uses “records” or “blocks” to store data or information. These records or blocks get duplicated automatically with the mechanism of cryptography, thus providing a more secure data storage platform. Blockchain is the technology which supports the cryptocurrencies and Digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. Other such cryptocurrencies are Ripple, Litecoin, Monero, etc. But the scope of blockchain technology is not just limited to finance.
