Dear MDBC members,

A blockchain is a continuously growing list of records that are linked and secured using cryptography.  They are secure by design and have frequently been mentioned in the same sentence as cryptocurrency.  Blockchain however, is suitable for more than just use with cryptocurrency and its potential is now being looked at across various sectors including uses in supply chain management and trade documentation.
