As of now, Ethereum is the most well-known and successful blockchain that enables a smart contract platform that has proper state channels. This means that every block of the Ethereum blockchain has information related to its entire state. The information comprises account balances, contract code, and contract storage, etc.

What are state channels?

State channels are referred to as the procedure through which the users conduct a transaction with each other off-the-chain or outside the blockchain. Both participants use their private keys in the channel for the transaction, ensuring security in the process. It is quite similar to that of Bitcoin Lightning Network’s payment…


The European Union (EU) Green Deal is the groundbreaking, revolutionary step to become the first climate-neutral organization worldwide by 2025. It is a commitment to boost the green economy and protect the environment through green technology. It creates a sustainable industry and transport and improves air, water, soil, and cutting down the pollution. As a result, the EU Green Deal is a plan to make the EU’s economy sustainable. In this article we will learn about how blockchain technology can save tress and the country.

But it is evident that how the policy changes are executed across 27 countries in…


The year 2009 was the landmark year when the cryptocurrency was created in the year 2009 by a pseudonymous developer known as Satoshi Nakamoto. While we have not been able to figure out who the gentleman Satoshi Nakamoto is; his contribution is undoubtedly important from the perspective of 2020s economy. Bitcoins are designed to function like exchange mediums that are secured with strong cryptography. This would in turn secure financial deals, control the creation of additional units and verify asset transfers. Using a decentralized control mechanism, they are able to exercise decentralized control.

Bitcoin emerged as the open-source software which…


The Blockchain Consensus

The buzz around blockchain remains too high. A blockchain is a decentralized, distributed, and public digital ledger used to record transactions across many computers so that the record cannot be altered retroactively without altering the subsequent blocks and the collusion of the network. The blockchain needs a functional, efficient and secure consensus algorithm to function globally with a shared public ledger.

Here, I’ll be discussing the consensus mechanisms that a blockchain uses. It differs from blockchain to blockchain and the technology they are using; for example, Ethereum uses Proof of stake, and Bitcoin uses Proof of work.

Blockchain Consensus Mechanisms:

Proof of Work**


If we have to talk about the pioneering technology that’s bringing in a great impact in almost all the industries, that will be Blockchain!

Blockchain has become the most promising technology that no tech giant would want to move away from it. The top companies are utilizing blockchain technology to the fullest. They brought it into the mainstream since the evolution of bitcoin.

We’ve listed below the top firms leading in empowering their products and services with blockchain technology. Take a glance at the list of enterprises embracing the blockchain technology underlying cryptocurrencies to improve their businesses' efficiency and revenue.

If you are interested in blockchain, then knowing about the hashing method becomes an essential part of your learning process. If you are yet unclear about the subject then, this blog will be a guide to you.

What is hashing in blockchain?

Hashing is the procedure of producing values from a series of texts by using a mathematical equation. It is a great way to ensure security to a message when it is being transmitted to a specific individual. The mathematical equation is used to generate the hash, which enables security during the procedure.

The Proof of Work mechanism has several drawbacks which can be easily understood by people researching blockchain. Blockchain has a standard method of maintaining consensus among the members. However, the developers have faced several complaints and problems associated with Proof of Work. The blockchain network works on a system of peers or equally privileged agents. The concept of the peer is simple. A peer shares his personal space with the network to get his share of accessibility over the blockchain.

The term consensus means an agreement or set of rules that mandate all the nodes to achieve for the validation…


2020 has been a tough year for everyone — firms, entrepreneurs, investors, contributors, and many more. The pandemic year has brought in various trends and took us to innovations. In the case of the cryptocurrency and blockchain landscape — they were at their wits’ end trying to push their boundaries in possible ways. But, what has it been like? Was it like the start of a vicious cycle? Or are they still holding their thrones firmly?. Let’s talk about the upcoming trends in Blockchain, Decentralized Finance (DeFi), and Digital Transformation.

Unexpected Blockchain Transition

Blockchain: As the name says, it is made up of blocks that are connected in chains. Well, these blocks store data that is distributed globally on thousands of servers at a time. Such that anyone on the network can have access to the data and note the updates in real-time. All these blocks are verified by millions of computers distributed across the internet. So when these blocks are added to…


Blockchain: The most invisible technology that’s surfacing around the globe. It is changing the way we live, the way we work. You might not even realize the change, but it is happening.

Most of our digital lives have been upgraded with Blockchain. In our everyday banking, online shopping, apps, and services used from our smartphone, everywhere — the Blockchain are all hidden, making our lives easier and simple. It stood as the BIG answer to all of our major problems.

Think of banking space — every transaction that we conduct, exchange of value, goods, and services, blockchain remains constant. All…
