Blockchain, cryptocurrency and Bitcoin for businessess -

What is Blockchain and How Does it Work?


Blockchain may have an essential role in validating cryptocurrency payments, but itís potential is far greater. Essentially a digital ledger, blockchain records transactions and stores data in "blocks" which is then linked to previous records using the encryption technique of cryptography.


To further improve security, this digital ledger is stored on thousands of computers across the globe simultaneously. As multiple copies exist, itís impossible to change or alter data once it is entered into the block.

Applications of Blockchain


The high-level of security provided by blockchain makes it perfect for supporting a whole range of digital platforms - not just cryptocurrency. Today, itís used to bypass third-parties to create smart contracts, to quickly and cheaply send money internationally and process payments, and even to improve online security by using cryptography rather than passwords to allow individualsí access.


Blockchain also has the potential to improve security for voting, private medical records, and significantly disrupt industries. Over the next few years, itís expected that blockchain will become mainstream as itís integrated into more of our digital technology and used by more businesses.

I found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….
Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss
this topic here on your blog."

"I have learnt a lot of things from Money Morning, but this is ridiculous. I have been following the Bitcoin's ups and downs and it seems to be backed by the Russians - would you trust anything to them?
RT news seems to be intent on continuing the cold war with the US. Their news coverage is mainly about Wikileaks and the Bitcoin. It has got boring sadly, because they used to show some interesting news stories."

"First, I am a complete newbie here and i’m trying to buy a digital product. I am really open to more tips.
So, I am about to sign up to buy bitcoin from localbitcoin and they are asking for my email address. Is it ok to use my email address for privacy purpose? I’m taking your advise not to link my real life info, but I have to buy the bitcoin through paypal, which has my real life info. I’m confused! Please help! Thanks for your time."

Frankly I do not understand bitcoin or the blockchain.

Can anyone please direct me to a book or site that is very BASIC on the subject.

Some have emailed us asking for a simple introduction to blockchain/crypto currency. We suggest starting with the book 'Blockchain for Dummies'

Then perhaps the books Bitcoin for Dummies and Ethereum for Dummies

"How does the flow of Cryptocurrency handled? How is the ratio between supply and demand balanced? I have read that there has been times when the security of crypto-network has been compromised. Is it really the future of Digital Money? Rather than a currency, it seems to be an investment scheme plan. I am not trying to be a critic here, just a lot of questions bubbling into the mind.

Perhaps this is the future for block chain
