Transaction is recorded as a “block” of data, as each transaction occurs.
Those transactions show the movement of an asset that can be tangible (a product) or intangible (intellectual). you can even record the information on the data block such as: who, what, when, where, how much and, also the circumstances like the temperature of a food shipment.
Each block is associated to its neighboring blocks.
When an asset moves from place to place or ownership changes hands, these blocks form a chain of data. The blocks make sure that the exact time, sequence of transactions, and block linking are secure. This helps to prevent any block from being tempered or a block being inserted between two existing blocks.
Transactions are blocked together in an irreversible chain: a blockchain
Each additional block nourishes the establishment or verification of the previous block and hence the entire blockchain. This provides the blockchain alter-evident, delivering the prime strength of immutability. This eliminates the possibility of altering data by a hostile person. This also ensures to build a ledger of transactions you and other network members can trust.
