What is Blockchain? Blockchain is a special type of data storage. Information is not stored on a central computer, but in distributed networks, i.e. on several servers. Each of them manages a complete copy of the data. If one computer fails, all the information is still stored on all the others.

Chip.de provides another definition:"A Blockchain is a database. It contains transaction records and is constantly growing. The Clou: The Blockchain represents a web-based, public and decentralised accounting system. This means that every computer that is part of the network manages a complete mirroring of the Blockchain."
