How does a Blockchain work?

Posted by Anii Jain on October 15th, 2019

Blockchain is a list of transaction records commonly known as blocks by using cryptography. Every block in blockchain stores data and hence, also known as “distributed ledger.” The blocks are organized in chronological orders making a chain that is linked together. Every first block in the blockchain is known as Genesis Block.

A Step by Step Guide How Blockchain Actually Works

Blockchain consists of three principal technologies that collaborate to give a secure digital trade option that is:

  • Private Key Cryptography
  • A Distributed Network with a Shared Ledger
  • Maintaining transaction records and security

#Step 1

Creating a Private Key

Via cryptography, the person starts with creating and digitally signing it with a private key. It is usually a data structure that includes logics of transfer of value, source, destination address, and relevant rules necessary for validation.

#Step 2

Gossip Protocol

Vernacularly known as flooding protocol, is used for propagating transactions and data among all the members of an ad-hoc network.

#Step 3


The transactions will be in the block form once the transaction has been validated. Further, it is propagated onto networks while confirming the transaction.

#Step 4

Cryptographical Ledger

After confirmation, it becomes the part of the ledger to assure that future blocks are linked automatically with the help of cryptography. The link is known as “hash pointer” and, in this phase the transaction gets second confirmation.

Blockchain has become one of biggest revolution in the trade-trend. There is no probability of missed transaction, and machine or human errors. To retain and maintain the accountability of blockchain technology, experts at Sphinx Worldbiz are offering accessibility across the globe.
