The blockchain is considered a revolutionary technology that has enabled secure transactions with a variety of cryptocurrencies. It is a complicated concept for many to understand, but it is actually not difficult. Apropos of our collection of blockchain books in PDF format, we will try our best to explain this type of record keeping.
Although it is a term that has become more popular in the last two decades, as early as 1991 Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta was talking about their first work on blockchain. Today blockchain came to eliminate the figure of intermediary and thus achieve decentralized transactions. This and more can be found in our compendium of blockchain books in PDF format.
The blockchain is a single, consensual record, distributed across a number of nodes in a network. The analogy for cryptocurrencies is that of a ledger where all transactions are recorded.
In each block of the chain lies a number of valid transactions, information related to the block, the linkage with the previous and next block through the hash (a code that serves as a fingerprint).
In that sense, the blocks occupy a specific place that cannot be changed or altered since each one contains information about the previous block. The entire chain is stored in a node of the network. When new records are created, they are verified and approved by the nodes, then added to a block that is appended to the chain.
Blockchain technology is highly secure, as your information cannot be modified, deleted or lost.
We hope that our collection of over 15 blockchain books will be of real use for your studies on this interesting topic. You can download the title or titles of your choice completely free of charge.
