Kokal Authors Article on Blockchain Technology


In “Blockchain for businesses” an article that appeared in the January 2017 edition of the Springfield Business Journal, Mike Kokal discusses the “blockchain” technology that is behind the digital currency Bitcoin. “In a blockchain,” Kokal wrote, “rather than the parties generating entries in separate records, the details of each transaction get automatically coded into blocks of data that are cryptographically linked together with other transactions and secured over a network.” Kokal goes on to discuss some of the business applications beyond Bitcoin in which this technology may be used in the future.
