What Is Blockchain?

At its heart is a distributed data store. Anyone who participates in this network has their own data store that stores all of the transactions that ever happened on the network (this is also known as the distributed ledger).

Entries are stored within a cryptographic chain of blocks. At every stage, the network of participants must agree about the latest block of transactions.

Agreement is reached through a process of majority consensus, eliminating duplicate entries, double spending etc.

This process and the cryptographic layering of the blocks makes the agreed blockchain irreversible and immutable.

The ‘history’ of events within this technology cannot be modified by any one of the participants without majority consensus from the group.

What Is A Private Blockchain?

Private blockchains are deployed either within an organization or shared among a known group of participants. They can be limited to a predefined set of participants. In this case, no one else can access them or the data residing in them. They can be secured in a similar way to securing other integrated enterprise applications (e.g. firewalls, VPN etc).

What Is A Smart Contract?

A Smart Contract is code that is deployed to the blockchain. Each smart contract contains code that can have a predefined set of inputs.

Following the distributed model of the blockchain, smart contracts run on every node in this technology, and each contract’s data is stored in every node.

This data can be queried at any time. Smart Contracts can also call other smart contracts, enforce permissions, run workflow logic, perform calculations etc.

Smart contract code is executed within a transaction – so the data stored as a result of running the smart contract (i.e. the state) is part of the blockchain’s immutable ledger.

What is the IoT?

IoT is short for Internet of Things. The network-controlled management of certain types of electronic devices — for instance, the monitoring of air temperature in a storage facility.

Smart contracts make the automation of remote systems management possible. A combination of software, sensors, and the network facilitates an exchange of data between objects and mechanisms. The result increases system efficiency and improves cost monitoring.

How can Blockchain help industries?

Blockchain technologies have the potential to radically change the face ofindustries and redefining the way companies do business,Blockchain eliminates huge amounts of recordkeeping, which can get very confusing when there are multiple parties involved on a transaction.

Are there any benefits of using it?

Benefits of adopting this technology into business.
1. Efficiency
As in Blockchain technology, transactions are done directly in between the two parties without any involvement of the third party

2. Auditability
On the blockchain network, each transaction detail is recorded subsequently and it provides an audibility for the asset in between two parties. It is especially beneficial for the businesses in which data source is needed in order to authenticate the assets.

3. Traceability
In the blockchain, tracking goods in a supply chain is pretty easy and advantageous too.

4. Transparency
Transparency is one of the major benefits of blockchain to small, medium as well as large businesses. in order to provide transaction details against commercial construct, trust and transparency need to be maintained in the process for a stable relationship instead of negotiation.

5. Security
each transaction is recorded and verified in the network through complex cryptographic problems. The information authenticity is assured through complex mathematical algorithms.

6. Feedback
Another benefit to businesses of blockchain technology is feedback. the manufacturers and designers of asset can easily track the assets and accommodate the asset management in products in order to make it more effective.

7.Lower transaction costs
Blockchains are less costly due to low transaction fees, elimination of third party intermediaries and overhead costs for exchanging assets.

Are there any drawbacks to using it?

Here is why blockchain is attractive, its distributed nature In an enterprise, centralized control can translate into security. With blockchain, which is decentralized, the technology works best when information sharing is a necessity across multiple, often disparate, parties.
