Blockchain has three main features:
 
  • Veracity – multiple copies of the complete historical record of ledger entries are each verified by consensus. Bogus entries are identified and eliminated by failure to reach consensus.
  • Transparency – it is a public record of activity that can be seen by all market participants.
  • Disintermediation – it operates using a peer-to-peer network, rather than requiring a specific central organization.

The Purdue Blockchain Lab is a research group at Purdue University focusing on Blockchain and simulation, Blockchain for IoT and Supply Chain, Blockchain for Big Data and AI and its underlying technologies.
