A blockchain is a decentralized peer-to-peer network utilizing distributed ledger technology (DLT). Blockchains are made up of an ever-expanding, trackable list of records, also known as blocks, which are linked together in a chain.
Assets that can be tracked include tangible items like a car or property, or intangible items like patents and copyrights. Intangibles can include legal tender like cash, or even cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin BTC/USD and Ethereum ETH/USD.
