What is blockchain?

Blockchain is a distributed and decentralized database. It stores digital information in the form of groups known as blocks. The blocks possess certain storage capacities, and are linked to each other to form a chain, known as a blockchain. Each block is time stamped and irreversible in the blockchain. Once a block is filled with data up to its limit, then the next data is entered into a fresh or next block of the chain.
