Blockchain, the cornerstone of a decentralization strategy, is a distributed database that is replicated across multiple nodes to enable immutable, permanent, transparent, and secure record-keeping of transactions. Essentially Blockchain is a data storage and data transaction validation system.

The blockchain technology is the only peer-to-peer decentralized network to authorize users to digitally sign transactions with 100% accuracy.
