Blѳckchain -R𝖊questing Bitcѳin
Like the name indicates, a blockchain is a chain of blocks that contains information. This technique was originally described in 1991 by a group of researchers and was originally intended to timestamp digital documents so that it is not possible to backdate them or to tamper with them, working almost as a notary.
It went unused until 2009, when Satoshi Nakamoto adapted it to create the digital cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. A blockchain can be defined as a distributed ledger that is completely open to anyone. Once some data has been recorded inside a blockchain, it becomes very difficult to change it.
"Blockchain.com got its start as an early pioneer of key infrastructure for the bitcoin community," reads the blockchain.com website.
