What is blockchain technology?
Blockchain technology is behind the bitcoin network, a pioneering form of financial technology. Combining a unique set of blocks to conceal personal information, blocks are given an identity using a code called a hash. From here, a new block is added to the blockchain, recording and distributing digital information that can't be tampered with.
How is blockchain used?
Blockchain technology is behind the increasing usage of cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, and is emerging as the technology trusted for digital transactions for people worldwide. Yet in their infancy, cryptocurrencies are, in the eyes of many, the future, but until mass adoption takes place it is confined to its niche status. Likewise, the use of blockchain technologies in banking is almost inevitable, but experts say it will likely be used in sectors of banking, such as trade finance, and not in the industry as a whole.
How is blockchain so secure?
Due to the amount of effort it would take to maliciously alter a transaction within the blockchain, and the subsequent effect needed to hack into the blockchain itself, is next to impossible. If a hacker was to change the information on a block, a new block would be added to the chain with a new hash, exposing their attempt.
A cybercriminal would need to change every block in the chain to cover their tracks. With the odds of solving one of the complex math questions in a blockchain standing at 1 in 5.8 trillion, programmes need to operate with astonishing power and energy - meaning that the benefits of hacking into the blockchain are easily outweighed by the costs.
