FAQ

It is an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way or use as a distributed ledger. A blockchain is typically managed by a peer-to-peer network collectively adhering to a protocol for inter-node communication and validating new blocks. Once recorded, the data in any given block cannot be altered retroactively without alteration of all subsequent blocks, which requires consensus of the network majority. Although blockchain records are not unalterable, blockchains may be considered secure by design and exemplify a distributed computing system with high Byzantine fault tolerance. Blockchains can be fully decentralized and public or semi decentralized and private.
A security token is a digital representation of a real asset that provides the holder fractionalized ownership of the underlying asset or a participation of the main attributes or benefits.
