What exactly does Blockchain mean?

Blockchain, as the word suggests, “Block”, referring to pieces of digital data or information and “Chain”, a chain of such information stored in a database for public use. Let us understand what Blockchain has got to do with banking. For instance, let us suppose that you click on a shopping website and select dresses for yourself and after a lot of confusion, you finally pick out one! Now once you click the “buy now” option, you are then directed to proceed for payment. The time, date you make the purchase at/on, the amount that you have to pay and information about who is taking part in that transaction gets stored in those Blocks. Every Block in the chain differs from the other in the sense of “hash” which is a unique credential labelled to it.

Another better example to understand about it is the Google Docs which allows several users to access it simultaneously while also changing every change made to it. Not a copy but the original document is available to people.

Every Blockchain consists of three parts: Block, nodes and miners.

Having now known a bit about Blockchain let us see some skills that are required to be a blockchain developer.
