Digital: what is blockchain?
Having emerged in 2008 with the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, blockchain has become an increasingly important topic. Blockchain is a database which contains the history of all transactions carried out between its users since it was created. Unlike peer-to-peer (P2P), which uses a central server, blockchain is a secure, transparent technology for storing data and transmitting information. It is a decentralised system with distributed storage and now offers applications that go far beyond just the use of a cryptocurrency. The "Monaco International Blockchain" (M.I.B.) event was organised in anticipation of this new trend.
