Would you like to securely transmit information online to a colleague or a loved one? To do this, you will certainly be advised to opt for the blockchain. Considered very effective, this data transfer technology is now used by more than one person. What is it really about?
The blockchain: what is it in reality?
Blockchain is nothing but a technology that you can use to store and send information. Arrived on the market in 2008, this tool nevertheless continues to attract more than one person.
It is actually a database that allows a group of users to exchange information with complete peace of mind. For the past few years, it has been the technology at the center of the decentralized web. Her influence also extends to the decentralized finance sector, where she is highly valued.
How does blockchain work?
The working principle of a blockchain is quite simple. For its implementation, you will first need a token or a currency (bitcoin, bitcoin, stellar…). Once you have it, you need to define the nature of blockchain. This can be open to everyone (public) or to a restricted group of people ( private ).
After it is set up, data transfer can begin. To do this, each stakeholder must identify themselves. Then, the information will be sent through a network (storage node) of computers to its recipient.
It is important to state here that the users of this system can be located in any corner of the world. Moreover, for each node keeping a copy of the exchange, all the users of this system can consult this information at the same time.
Blockchain and food traceability
The fields of exploitation of the blockchain are immense. Among these, we find that of food traceability. Indeed, with this system, a company can control all the transactions that will enable it to deliver its products to its recipients.
This will prevent him from wasting time, guarantee the quality of his products and also make significant savings. It is moreover in this context that the company Crystalchain had to apply it to its management system and can today meet all the expectations of its customers.

Blockchain is a transparent system. With the latter, no data or information can really escape you. This data chain without a central control body will allow you to establish a climate of trust between you and your partners.
If the blockchain is so appreciated by its users, it is because it offers them very good security. Indeed, this form of database relies on a cryptographic security system. By adopting this system, you will therefore be able to conduct all your transactions with peace of mind, because you will not be the victim of any fraud.
