Overview

    A blockchain provides an immutable record of transactions performed across a network without the need to rely on an intermediary, such as a central bank.     It is a concept that brings together economics and digital technologies in a way that was never before conceived. Blockchain enables not just new means by which to deliver financial services and support cryptocurrencies, but can also reshape and redefine government, legal services, accounting, insurance, supply chains, and energy distribution.
