Not just another name for cryptocurrency...

Blockchain is actually a flexible technology that offers three unique features:

  1. Untraceability—Each transaction is viewable but cannot be tracked to its source.
  2. Decentralization—No central point for failure, attack, or fraud.
  3. Trustlessness—A shared, distributed, public ledger ensures no cheating... so trust is unnecessary.

Any application that benefits from these features can be built on blockchain technology.
