Earlier, people found that traditional database system is a unique method for upgrading the overall system. As days passed on, there was serious threat towards conducting an online transactions, business or sharing data. It is claimed that the traditional process for enhancing business in the digital world doesn’t provide transparency and security. Even the biggest technologies such as eBay, Amazon, Google, Facebook found it difficult to maintain privacy over the collected data.
What is traditional database?
A database is operated on the Worldwide Web and is based on client-server network architecture. A client (User) with the proper authentication to their account can alter entries which are stored on a centralized server. It can change the master copy and a user can access a database by using their computer. This data is updated as a new version of the database entry. The control of this database always remains with administrators. They provide access and permission which is maintained as the central authority.
What is Blockchain technology?
Blockchain is a dispersed database system which acts as an open ledger to store and feature transactions. Each and every record in the database is called as a block. It comprises details such as transaction time and place linked to the previous block. Here each participant maintains, calculates and updates new entries into the database. All the nodes work together to ensure they end at the same point. It also provides in-built security for the network.
The blockchain technology is revolutionizing P2P transactions in the modern digital world. This technology is storing the record of online transactions by using distributed digital ledger. Basically, the open dispersed ledger records the transactions among the two parties in an efficient manner. Initially, the concept of Blockchain was founded by Satoshi Nakamoto as the distributed blockchain. It contains a history of data exchange which is utilizes a P2P Network to verify each and every transaction without any central authority. Gradually, this became a backbone to the Bitcoin (first digital currency of the globe). Then it gave rise to a new era of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.
How does Blockchain technology works?
Blockchain securely records data of all exchanges & transactions which is called as a digital ledger. The data exchange taken place is transaction and verified transaction is featured to the ledger as a block.
The technology uses distributed system to rectify each transaction and is a P2P network of nodes. The verified data is added as the new transaction to the blockchain and can’t be altered.
