A blockchain is a public ledger of all transactions ever executed. All of the transactions and data are stored in a distributed database. Each time the database is updated, all of updates are done together in a batch called a ‘block’. Each time a new block is produced/added, it is appended on to all of the previous blocks – hence the name “blockchain”.
