Blockchain has been considered a disruptive technology compared to the Internet, promising innovation in the financial and commercial areas comparable to the impact that the Web had on communication. It stands to revolutionize the way we interact with each other based on three main concepts: Track and data store – the decentralized and distributed system across an extensive network of computers becomes a safe way to track data changes over time. Trust – it is the key concept. The system allows us to interact directly with our data in real-time and the network, all the computers verify the changes in the transactions which creates trust in the data. Peer-to-peer transactions – in this system there are no more intermediaries. Instead of sharing our data with an intermediary such as a bank or a lawyer, we will share it directly with peers. It is a new way to access, verify and transact with each other.
