In essence, blockchain is a type of digital ledger technology (DLT) comprised of unalterable, digitally recorded data called ‘blocks’ that are shared between a privately or publicly distributed network. Once recorded via a cryptographic signature, the data in any given block cannot be changed without the alteration of all subsequent blocks, which requires the consent from the other network participants. The results are a transparent yet incredibly secure method to record any number of processes from financial transactions like bitcoin to identity management and asset tracking, both a common occurrence in the facility management world.
