What exactly a blockchain is?

A blockchain is a digital list of documents referred to as blocks. The cryptography approach is used to connect these blocks together. It is controlled via a peer-to-peer network that serves as a publicly distributed ledger. Blockchain is a type of platform that allows individuals to trade assets and transactions without the intervention of any centralized entity, such as the RBI ( Reserve Bank Of India).

For Example: If there is a person A who wants to transfer funds to person B then the details of the transaction, along with other key information, are processed into a block. This block also contains a password or a public key that every node has access to, and a private key that only Person A has access to.
