Understanding Blockchain - What is Blockchain?

A Rush to Patent the Blockchain Is a Sign of the Technology’s Promise

In the first episode of “Understanding Blockchain,” Morrison & Foerster’s Susan Gault-Brown and Dario de Martino define blockchain for those without a technical background. They break down how it works, what it’s used for, and technologies under the blockchain umbrella, such as cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer ledger systems, and incentive mechanisms to service the network.

This ongoing series is dedicated to providing an overall understanding of blockchain technology and how companies can use it to share, store, and record valuable data through a secure, immutable network.
