Regarding the trustworthiness of the blockchain, the network has designed tests for computers that want to join and add blocks to the chain. These tests are referred to as “consensus models” – require users to solve a complex computational math problem before they can become eligible to add blocks to the blockchain. This brings us back to the mining process mentioned earlier – the process of adding blocks to the blockchain.
The blockchain is quite essential to businesses that deal with transactional data. Certain financial transactions can be difficult and time-consuming to carry out.
