本研究报告重点研究并解释允许比特币在个人和商业交易中实现数字价值并实施的基础技术（Hernandez，2017）。必须考虑到促进比特币实施的技术被称为区块链。因此，本报告不仅将区块链解释为独特的技术，而且还将展示该技术的功能。除了比特币可以使用区块链以及其他第三方应用程序采用区块链技术的方式之外，本报告中关于区块链技术细节的部分内容将保持不变。技术细节将进一步介绍区块链确保安全的方式以及不可否认性（Eyal et al。，2016）。本报告的基本目的是介绍区块链在不久的将来可能产生的影响。但是，为了执行相同的操作，挖掘概念将与区块链使用分布式系统的方式一起理解。因此，本报告的以下部分介绍区块链的不同技术细节，重点介绍区块链在不久的将来可能实现的可能性。
This research report focuses on investigating and explaining the underlying technology that allowed the Bitcoin to digitally transfer value and implemented within the personal and business transactions (Hernandez, 2017). It is imperative to consider that the technology which facilitates the implementation of Bitcoin is known as the Blockchain. Therefore, this report will not only explain Blockchain as a distinct technology but also present the manner in which this technology functions. The part of the focus on this report will be maintained on presenting the technical details of Blockchain pertaining to the other applications apart from Bitcoin for which the Blockchain can be used and the manner in which other third party applications employs the Blockchain technology. The technical details will further present the way in which security is ensured by the Blockchain along with the non-repudiation (Eyal et al., 2016). The underlying purpose of this report is to present the possible impact of Blockchain in the near future. However, in order to perform the same, the concept of mining will be understood along with the manner in which distributed systems are used by the Blockchain. Hence, the following sections of this report present the distinct technical details of Blockchain with the focus on concluding with the possibilities Blockchain hold for the near future.
