Introduction to Blockchain

Malvern International Academy Pte Ltd

Course introduction

Blockchain is a digitised, decentralised, public ledger of all Digital Asset transcations. Constantly growing as 'completed' blocks (the most recent transcations) are recorded and added to it in chronological order. It allows market participants to keep track of digital asset transcations without central recordkeeping. Each node (a computer connected to the network) gets a copy of the blockchain, which is downloaded automatically.
