What is blockchain?

"To help cut through the noise, we talked with Scott Shackelford, associate professor and Cybersecurity Program Chair at Indiana University to get to the bottom of this misunderstood technology.

That said, many people still doubt blockchain’s future. As Shackelford explains, switching from the old way of doing things requires some cognitive reframing.

“At its root, blockchains allow industries and the internet more generally, to return to a decentralized internet, but this will only happen when it becomes accepted that decentralized is safer than centralized,” says Shackelford."
