  • THE BLOCKCHAIN #BITCOINISLE
  • A block chain is a transaction database shared by all nodes participating in a system based on the Bitcoin protocol. ! A full copy of a currency's block chain contains every transaction ever executed in the currency. ! With this information, one can find out how much value belonged to each address at any point in history. ! ! #BITCOINISLE
  • Every block contains a hash of the previous block. This has the effect of creating a chain of blocks from the genesis block to the current block. #BITCOINISLE
  • Each block is guaranteed to come after the previous block chronologically because the previous block's hash would otherwise not be known. #BITCOINISLE
  • ! Each block is also computationally impractical to modify once it has been in the chain for a while because every block after it would also have to be regenerated. ! These properties are what make double-spending of bitcoins very difficult. ! The block chain is the main innovation of Bitcoin #BITCOINISLE
