Blockchain is a secure distributed ledger database that is used and shared by all nodes, or blocks in the blockchain network. Information that is stored and distributed through the blockchain network is completely secure and cannot be retroactively altered. All of the blocks run on the same software and continuously talk to each other to validate it.
