Abstract for Understanding Blockchain:

Bitcoin is an interesting new cryptocurrency - a technology that allows anonymous but fully secure and fully decentralized "cash" transactions. If you have been paying attention either in the financial technology industry or the startup funding scene, you'll know that cryptocurrencies are getting a lot of hype, and even some of the most conservative companies - i.e. banks - have started research efforts related to cryptocurrencies to ensure that they're not caught napping if this disrupts their industry. 


But, there is a far bigger picture here that is important to understand. The core underlying cryptocurrencies is Blockchain technology. This is essentially a protocol/algorithm that allows untrusted third-parties to exchange information with each other in a fully secure, fully decentralized way without the fear of repudiation. This has a potential to disrupt many industries and change how we do business in lots of domains - from supply chain industry to domain name servers to Government.
