What is Blockchain?

It’s your future.
  Blockchain technology enables transactions through a peer-to-peer ledger with improved efficiency and without the need for a centralized authority. The most prolific use of Blockchain technology today serves as the backbone for crytocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and others. However, many new uses for this cutting-edge technology are on the horizon, including voting, health record management, insurance claims, title management, cross-jurisdictional payments, smart contracts and supply chain management.
