What is Blockchain?

A blockchain is a budding list of records, called blocks, which are connected using cryptography. Every block includes a cryptographic hash of the preceding block, the timestamp, and transaction data. By means of design, blockchain is a decentralized technology. A blockchain is unwilling to alteration of the data. It is an open, distributed ledger that can trace transactions amid two parties in a verifiable, correct and enduring way.


Blockchain Technology

By enabling digital information to be distributed but not imitated, blockchain technology built the backbone of a new form of internet. It delivers a stable and secured transaction which turns hacking or altering impracticable. In tech terminology, data through blockchain is immutable.


A blockchain database is handled autonomously utilizing a peer-to-peer network and with a distributed time stamping server. By having stored the data across its peer-to-peer network, the blockchain gets rid of a number of risks. Blockchain security methodologies comprise the use of public-key cryptography. A public key which is a long, random-looking string of numbers is a defined address on the blockchain. The value tokens sent around the required network are tracked and recorded as being part to that address.


A private key is like a password that provides its owner access to their digital assets or the means to otherwise interact with the various capabilities that blockchains now support. Data stored on the blockchain is in general measured as incorruptible.

Impact and Advantages of Blockchain Technology

By letting go of mediators, blockchain transactions reduce the overall costs, increase the speed of required processes and result in superior flexibility all the way through the intact systems in use. Its efficiency, business transparency, trust and cost-effectiveness drive more valuable stakeholder integration to take intensive actions.


•  Transparency – Blockchain turns transaction histories increasingly transparent. As it is a kind of a distributed ledger, all the required nodes in the network share the copy of the documentation. If there is a change in transaction history, every stakeholder in the network can view the alterations and the reorganized records.


•  Traceability – In multifaceted supply chains, it is tough to trace products back to their beginning. However, with blockchain, the exchanges of goods are documented and recorded, enabling an audit trail to explore where a specific asset originated. You even get to know each stop the product made on its way and this traceability of products can assist to verify the legitimacy and put a stop to frauds.


•  Efficiency – With conventional and paperwork procedures, completing a transaction is always draining, requiring the 3rd party mediation and is open to human errors. Blockchain modernizes these legacy methodologies and eradicates the risk of errors making the processes more efficient, precise and swift.


•  Security – Blockchain is superior to other record-keeping systems in terms of security, measured by all the required benchmarks. The shared documentation can only be updated or modified with agreement on a blockchain network. Only if all or a majority of nodes consent to revise a record, the data or information is edited. As we addressed above, blockchain is completely decentralized, and no one has the right to modify records by their will.


NCG has worked with diverse industries having a crucial requirement to safeguard sensitive data, such as government authorities, medical or healthcare and financial services providers which can further utilize blockchain to put into effect enhanced business efficiency and high-end security measures.
