Back To The Crypto Glossary


A ledger of data that is maintained by nodes, preferably decentralized, and through code the data is stored in blocks that are 'chained' together using encryption techniques.

Also referred to as a Time Chain, by Satoshi, in some of the original Bitcoin forums.

Also used in this technical way..
