Few of us know that the technology named blockchain, that is so widely spread nowadays, was described back in 1991 by the group of researchers. It couldn’t find practical usage over 2 decades before 2009 when mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto used the technology as the basis of his invitation: the Bitcoin. But what is blockchain, how it works and what problems does it solve? There are a lot of definitions and explanations of this technology but ‘the distributed and open ledger’ describes it the best. Keeping the same information on each node of the network item and checking the compliance while adding any new block, makes blockchain almost absolutely secure and trustworthy. Not drowning in technical details too much we should say that right now blockchain is changing the traditional financial system. Thanks to this technology P2P transactions are reality nowadays. Democratic governments are implementing blockchain in more and more fields of public administration and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
