Two types of blockchain

Blockchain is a secured, decentralised information storage and transmission technology. It works like a public digital register in which data is recorded in the form of “blocks” linked together chronologically. Each block contains information and a reference to the previous block, forming a continuous chain of data.

Publique Blockchain

Une blockchain publique est, comme son nom l’indique, ouverte à quiconque souhaite y participer. Elle est généralement décentralisée, ce qui signifie qu’elle est gérée par un grand nombre de participants, souvent anonymes, à travers le monde. Les données stockées sur une blockchain publique sont visibles par tous, et les transactions sont vérifiables par n’importe qui.

Private Blockchain

A private blockchain is restricted to a limited group of participants or specific entities. It is centralised to a certain extent, as its control is based on a defined set of validation nodes. The data stored on a private blockchain can be restricted in terms of access, offering a higher level of confidentiality.

The infallible security of
de la private blockchain

The blockchain system remains tamper-proof, and to further enhance security, opt for the use of a private blockchain.

Unlike a public blockchain that is accessible to everyone, a private blockchain restricts access to authorised participants only. This guarantees an extra level of confidentiality and control, making it a particularly suitable option for businesses and organisations that want to protect their sensitive data and control access to it.
