Not just another name for cryptocurrency...
Blockchain is actually a flexible technology that offers three unique features:
- Untraceability—Each transaction is viewable but cannot be tracked to its source.
- Decentralization—No central point for failure, attack, or fraud.
- 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.
