Blockchain technology is complex, but the idea is simple. At its most basic, blockchain is a vast, global distributed ledger or database running on millions of devices and open to anyone, where not just information but anything of value - money, titles, deeds, music, art, scientific discoveries, intellectual property, and even votes - can be moved and stored securely and privately.
On the blockchain, trust is established, not by powerful intermediaries like banks, governments and technology companies, but through mass collaboration and clever code. Blockchains ensure integrity and trust between strangers, by making it difficult to cheat.
