Why Blockchain Is Bigger Than Bitcoin March 02 2018

Bitcoin is one of 2018’s biggest words and with that blockchain but the conversation about blockchain shouldn’t end with using it to explain cryptocurrency, that would be like explaining the internet by saying it’s used for Facebook. Blockchain enables the exchange of digital assets, such as bitcoin, but not just Bitcoin, any digital asset. A digital asset is anything set to binary that comes with permission to use it, this could be currency but it could also be health records, a vote in an election, your credit score or so much more. With a distributed ledger, recorded on multiple nodes, blockchain enforces transparency, is incorruptible, bypasses censorship, and impedes political, financial and institutional corruption.
