Blockchain Community

Welcome to the JAAGNet Community for BlockChain.

BlockChain is a diverse technology area and will cover many subjects such as the use of this technlogy in applications, from crypto currencies to digital gaming!  It is an extremely exciting technology and one that will impact both our working and personal lives.

Blockchain is a distributed database existing on multiple computers at the same time. It is constantly growing as new sets of recordings, or 'blocks', are added to it. Each block contains a timestamp and a link to the previous block, so they actually form a chain. 

 Let's start of with a definition:

noun blockchain
/ˈblɒktʃeɪn/
  1. a system in which a record of transactions made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency are maintained across several computers that are linked in a peer-to-peer network.
    "we can actually have a look at the blockchain and see evidence of what's going on"
