  • Secure method – The technology uses an advanced level of encryption to secure the process.
  • Transparent method – Anyone can join the network and view all the information on a blockchain.
  • Decentralized technology – A single entity does not own authority over the database. Instead, all stakeholders will own authority over it.
  • Immutable blocks – If users make any changes in the blocks, other users can easily spot them in the copies that they hold through the change caused in the hash.
  • Sharing of data – Blockchain data travels through a peer-to-peer network. All participants of the transaction receive this data via cryptographic signatures.
