What is blockchain?
Blockchain is a technology in which all data is encoded into blocks and connected together to form long chains.

Moreover, the information of the blockchain is not only located on a single server, but it will be automatically distributed and backed up on many different servers connected to the blockchain system, from which everyone can see and check their transactions. Each block contains information about the initiality time and is associated with the previous block, accompanied by a time code and transaction data. When the data is accepted by the network, there is no way to change it. Blockchain is designed to combat fraud, change of data.
