THE BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY:
Blockchain is a digitized / decentralized / public ledger that has evolved from simply keeping records of cryptocurrency
transactions to a preferred model used in various commercial applications today. Its key purpose is for verifying
transactions which is done by entire users in the blockchain community as opposed to a single centralized authority
practiced prior to the creation of this technology.

towards adopting / implementing Blockchain Technology on a wide scale and the DIBS 2018 stands to reaffirm the
ambitious move of the city is indeed in full momentum.
