The blockchain is a technology used by bitcoin. It’s a chain of blocks linked together by a code. The code is generated by a hash function.
A hash function is a function that takes something and return a code. Several hash functions exist. The goal of this kind of function is that a code returned by a hash function can be obtained by a unique thing given to this function. It makes the hash function secure.
A block contains a certain amount of transactions in bitcoin. On the bitcoin blockchain, there is a new block every ten minutes in average.
