As some of you may know, for some time I’ve had quite an interested in Crypto-Currencies and their related technology, From Mining and trading currencies to writing custom solutions which interact with the crypto-currencies and the Blockchain.
(Sidenote: Yes I’m still mining and trading :D )
The underplaying technology which drives crypto-currencies is Blockchain, but it can be used for other purposes!
What is the Blockchain?
A Blockchain is a decentralized and distributed digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers so that the record cannot be altered retroactively without the alteration of all subsequent blocks and the collusion of the network.
I found this Microsoft Virtual Academy Course when hunting for some Blockchain training material.
