Blockchain explained in short

Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that allows data to be shared across networks without being copied or stored in one central location. This makes it an ideal solution for businesses and organizations that need to securely store large amounts of sensitive information while maintaining complete control over who can access their data and when.

In addition to providing better protection against data breaches, blockchain also offers other benefits such as improved accuracy through verification processes and enhanced traceability as a result of immutability—the inability for anyone other than the owner/creator of information stored on the network (known as “self-sovereign identity”) to change or delete records on the network once they’ve been uploaded into it (or “written”). 

This allows for greater transparency and trust in transactions between parties.

Blockchain is the technology that powers cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. That said, there are many other applications of blockchain technology beyond crypto. There are many industries that could benefit from the use of blockchain, including healthcare and supply chain management.

Why do we write about blockchain and crypto ?

Blockchain technologies and crypto are still very young, but they’re growing rapidly. There’s still a lot of room for improvement in terms of speed, security, and scalability. 

We’ll need to educate the next generation on blockchain and crypto to keep it growing and make sure people understand both the benefits and the risks. 

It’s important we share not only the success stories of blockchain companies  in Southeast Europe (for example,  Elrond, NEAR Protocol, LimeChain, and Nexo) but also the challenges that stand in the way of mass blockchain implementation

As the blockchain and crypto space has evolved, so have the technologies. They’re still in their infancy, but they’re likely to continue growing and improving over time. 

As they improve blockchain databases are also likely to replace conventional databases as the most efficient way of storing data on a distributed network. 

With this ongoing adoption, we need to discuss some of the potential disadvantages of the blockchain ledger such as high energy consumption, use for criminal activities, and its immaturity when it comes to online transactions.
