Distributed Ledger

A ledger is a record of information/data. A blockchain chunks data into blocks and links these blocks in a chain. The information is then distributed to nodes in the network. Each node has all the information in the ledger as opposed to one central point storage point. A distributed ledger is the basis of a decentralized network.
