The blockchain was created by a pseudo-anonymous individual going by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto. Satoshi’s innovation that powers cryptocurrencies is known as the blockchain. It is a ledger of transactions that is distributed on computers all over the world.
Everyone has heard the term “Bitcoin,” especially when its price hit $20,000 per coin in late 2017. Despite this, I’ve found that few people know what the word “blockchain” means. The blockchain is the distributed ledger that cryptocurrencies run on. Without the blockchain, the entire cryptocurrency market would not exist.
