Block chain is a string of information related to banking transactions. Each individual block in a blockchain contains key information regarding a transaction or a set of transactions. Each block has a link to the previous block making the arrangement of the blocks non-random.

The blockchain is stored publicly hence it can easily be looked up by anyone having internet access. Once information is recorded in a block, it cannot be altered in any way making it permanent. More banks are adopting blockchain technology to manage their databases more systematically and efficiently. Blockchain technology makes it easier for financial institutions to track errors and discrepancies in transactions making it a necessary tool.

Introduction to blockchain technology

An unidentified online ledger that uses a data structure to shorten the way we execute transactions is known as a blockchain. Blockchain enables users to manipulate the ledger in a protected way devoid of the help of an intermediary. Presently, a majority of people use a dependable mediator such as a bank to make transactions, but blockchain permits clients and dealer to join directly, eliminating the requirement for a broker.

Employing cryptography to keep connections safe blockchain offers a decentralized database, of dealings that are visible to everyone on the network which makes it more transparent. This network is a string of systems that must all support a swap before it can be confirmed and verified.

How blockchain works?

"Blockchain allows two unknown parties to come to consent that something is correct devoid of the need of an arbitrator. In contrast to writing entering data into a sheet of paper, a blockchain is a dispersed database that takes various inputs and sets them into a block. Each block is then 'chained' to the next block using a cryptographic signature. This allows blockchains to be used as a ledger which is available to people with permission to do so.  If each one in the process is pre-selected, the ledger is termed 'permissions.' If the procedure is open globally, the ledger is called uncommissioned" According to Sunny Ray, Co-founder, and President of India's leading bitcoin block chain company, YOCOIN

Why are banks interested?

Major banks can use blockchains for transferring of funds, keeping records and for other rear end functions. The application— blockchain duplicates paper-intensive international trade finance process as an electronically decentralized ledger which enables end users like banks, etc. to access a single source of data.

Users can track documentation processes and verify ownership of assets electronically. Major Indian IT companies rely on blockchain to create stable banking platforms.

Usage

Blockchain does not only rule the financial sector but is being used in a lot of other areas. An example of it is the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) announcement about moving the countries equities clearing and settlement system on the blockchain.

Safety

Blockchain allows organizations to process a transaction without the third party in between. Economic institutions are allowed to process and verify transactions carefully devoid of human interference. The e-ledger of operations is regularly updated, and the proof given in blocks (of record).

Professionals deem that blockchain design can considerably topple the expenses and decrease inefficiencies in the economic sector.

Conclusion

Blockchain is one of the major trendsetters of today and is a rapidly increasing need for the future due to its efficiency and security.
