Blockchain is a dispersed data storage technology which stores all transactions across various computers. Having information stored in a decentralised format makes it impossible–according to the city–to forge or manipulate. Due to this, it is applicable in sectors that require a high level of security and credibility such as finance, healthcare, logistics, and more.
