Blockchain is a system that was developed to help computers come to a consensus about information. It enables people to send data and transactions between each other, away from third party control.

When was it invented? Blockchain was developed based on several older technologies in a new way, by who goes under the name of Satoshi Nakamoto, whether it’s a team or an individual. The main reason Satoshi Nakamoto created the blockchain technology was Bitcoin.
