Distributed Ledger Networks

A distributed ledger is a database that is synchronized and accessible across different sites and geographies by multiple participants.

What are distributed ledger networks good for?

These networks power decentralized solutions by providing three very important aspects to a network and how it shares data.


The data cannot be changed—by anyone. Having the schema change underneath a credential would cause chaos.

Tamper resistance

The network relying on many different servers being in sync with eachother makes it very difficult for a malicious actor to break in and change material because they would need compromise many devices across the network.

High availability

A ledger is distributed across many nodes with each containing a copy of the ledger. If one node goes down for any reason, there are plenty of others to receive data from.
