A is a growing collection of documents known as blocks that are connected together via encryption.

Each block includes a hash of the preceding block, a timestamp, and .

The timestamp demonstrates that the existed at the moment the block was released in order to be included in its hash.

Because each block contains information about the one before it, they create a chain, with each new block strengthening the ones before it.

As a result, blockchains are resistant to tampering since, once recorded, the contents in any one block cannot be changed retrospectively without affecting all subsequent blocks.
