What’s all the fuzz about Blockchain?

Blockchain, best known as the underlying technology for Bitcoin, provides a Distributed Ledger mechanism to lock and share information and making it independently verifiable and audit-able.

Blockchain removes the need for blind trust in a central authority by fragmenting authority across many independent systems and consensus-based verification of transactions.

This is the foundation of a new generation of transactional applications that establishes trust, accountability and transparency, while streamlining business processes.
