  • It is more like a distributed database and is not based on a single central storage location. Hence, comparatively safer from hackers
  • Accurate and correct storage of data, etc., where, every single verified transaction gets added to the ledger as a “block”
  • It works by replicating distributed system and verifying every transaction known as, “a peer-to-peer network of nodes”
  • The best beneficial factor of this technology is that, once a transaction is signed, verified and added to the Blockchain, it cannot be altered
  • Works on the basis of unique digital signature known as “keys” (public and private). Here the public key is the identity through which a user gets recognized among others and private key is for sole operation (digital sign, authorizing different actions, etc.)
