Just like any form of ledger, blockchain is a record of different transactions. It works through the following ways: the first thing it does is to gather information or data that the user has provided in form of smart contracts and transaction IDs. The second thing that happens is that it orders the data it has received into blocks then chains them using cryptography hence making them decentralized and accessible.
There has been a demand for trust and security from enterprises and people who do business. Blockchain comes in to solve this issue of trust and one can transfer money to another without being worried about anything. The security that blockchain provides is provided through cryptography.

The healthcare sector is also another sector that most people will be watching to see the kind of impact that blockchain will bring to it.
Another is issue that is prominent in government operations is corruption. With blockchain technology, these barriers are bound to be broken.
