Abstract

A blockchain is distributed, decentralized database
of records which enables fast reliable transactions without a
centralized management overlooking it. The cryptocurrency may

technology in various fields of finance and non-finance sectors
should not be underestimated. In this paper we will provide an
overview on how blockchain works, types of blockchain, and a
short overview of different blockchain platforms.

Keywords: blockchain, distributed ledger, hash, transaction cryptography, mining.
