Everything you need to know about Blockchain and Database

One question always comes to our mind that, “What is the difference between Blockchain and Database ?” or “Is Blockchain a database?” Well, yes Blockchain is a decentralized ledger (database) containing records of transactions.

While storing data in the blockchain you should always remember that there is no ‘D’ in ‘CRUD’ operations.

Data stored in the blockchain is not controlled by any central entity, because of which we can get higher security and reliability.

Data stored is not limited up to the transaction details only, we can see that a huge data will be stored on its nodes in future including texts, images, videos, infographics and so on.

There are certainly other alternatives which we can opt to store data for our systems which we will discuss one by one.

It relies on a Distributed Hash Table and the BitTorrent protocol.
