"Blockchain" or chain of blocks, is a technology of storage and transmission of information without control organ. Technically, it works like a distributed database, where user-generated information and internal links to the database are checked and grouped at regular time intervals into blocks, forming a chain of secure blocks by encryption. By extension, a blockchain is thus a distributed database, which maintains a list of records protected from falsification or modification and thus acts as a distributed and secure record of all transactions made since the start of a system distributed.
