Blockchain and DLT Program by IIITH and TalentSprint (69)


What is DLT and blockchain? ›

Distributed ledgers use independent computers (referred to as nodes) to record, share and synchronize transactions in their respective electronic ledgers (instead of keeping data centralized as in a traditional ledger). Blockchain organizes data into blocks, which are chained together in an append only mode.

What type of DLT is blockchain? ›

Blockchain is a type of DLT where transactions are recorded with an immutable cryptographic signature called a hash. The transactions are then grouped in blocks and each new block includes a hash of the previous one, chaining them together, hence why distributed ledgers are often called blockchains.

How is blockchain different from DLT? ›

The significant difference between blockchain and DLT is the cryptographic signing and linking groups of records in the ledger that forms a chain. Furthermore, there is a chance for the public and users to determine how a blockchain is structured and run based on the specific application of blockchain.

Which institute is best for blockchain in India? ›

* Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IIT-KGP), one of India's oldest premier technology institutes, started a free 12-week online course on blockchain from January 24, 2022 onwards. * The course educates about the basic design principles of blockchain technology and its applications in various sectors.
