Blockchain

Blockchain is a shared, distributed ledger that facilitates the process of recording transactions and tracking assets in a business network. An asset can be tangible – a house, a car, cash, land, or intangible like brands, or patents.

For example, blockchain enables securities to be settled in minutes instead of days.
