Storage structure

One important difference between a typical database and a blockchain is the way data is structured. Blockchain collects information in groups, also called blocks, which contain sets of information. Blocks have a specific storage capacity and, when filled, are connected to a pre-filled block, forming a chain of data known as a “blockchain”. All new information that follows the newly added block is compiled into a newly created block, which will be added to this sequence after filling.

A database organizes its data into tables, while a blockchain, as its name implies, organizes its data into blocks (blocks) that are interconnected. This means that all blockchains are databases, but not all databases are blockchains. This system also inherently creates a non-refundable data timeline if implemented in an irrational manner. When a block is filled, it anchors in the rock and becomes part of that timeline. When added to a series, each block in the series is given an exact timestamp.
