Blockchain technology is new. Understanding the principles behind this technology makes you helpful to apply in your projects. 

Initially, the purpose Blockchain developed was to carry mining. In general, mining means search and find the value. Usually, minings are two types. Those are data mining and bitcoin mining.

3 Types of Blockchains

1: Private blockchains

  • Private blockchains are great for developers because they allow them to test ideas without using cryptocurrency. The developers’ ideas can remain a secret as well, because the data has not been published publicly.
  • Large institutions can capitalize on the security and permanence of blockchain technology without their transactions being public the way they are in traditional blockchains.

    2: Public Blockchains

    • Public blockchains are available to general public. An example is buying an art piece from a vendor located in another country.

    3: Hybrid Blockchains

    • These are combination of public and private.
