Historically, when it comes to transacting money or anything of value, people and businesses have relied heavily on Intermediaries such as banks and governments who have always been into play when businesses and people have to perform transactions. These Banks and government which are the middlemen, perform a range of important tasks that help build trust into the transactional process like authentication & record keeping. Their role becomes much more important when making a digital transaction. Because digital assets like money, stocks & intellectual property, are essentially files, they are incredibly easy to reproduce or manipulate.
Well, a new technology exists today that makes a way of conducting digital transactions without a third party intermediary and this technology is called Blockchain.
What is Blockchain?
The Blockchain is a decentralized ledger of all transactions across peer to peer network. Using this technology, participants can confirm transactions without the need for a central certifying authority. Blockchain has applications that go way beyond obvious things like digital currencies and money transfers. From electronic voting, smart contracts & digitally recorded property assets to patient health records management and proof of ownership for digital content.
The Blockchain technology enables increase in trade by businesses and people to be much more frequent and efficient, it will also significantly boost local and international trade. The main advantages of this technology is that it would eliminate expensive intermediary fees which is an unnecessary burden on individuals and businesses to conduct their everyday trade
“A Blockchain is a magic computer that anyone can upload programs to and leave the programs to self-execute, where the current and all previous states of every program are always publicly visible, and which carries a very strong crypto economically secured guarantee that programs running on the chain will continue to execute in exactly the way that the Blockchain protocol specifies.” — Vitalik Buterin
How does Blockchain work?
To understand how Blockchain works we first need to know what is traded using Blockchain – It is nothing but Cryptocurrency.
Cryptocurrency is a medium of exchange, created and stored electronically in the Blockchain, using encryption techniques to control the creation of monetary units and to verify the transfer of funds. Bitcoin is the best example for a Cryptocurrency.
Blockchain is a highly disruptive technology that promises to change the world as we know it. The technology is not only shifting the way we use the Internet, but it is also revolutionizing the global economy.
The Blockchain enterprise company Chain and Visa announced their partnership in October 2016, for developing a simple, fast and secure way to process B2B payments globally. Visa rolled out the first, pilot phase of its Blockchain in November 2017.
This project mainly aims at eliminating the intermediaries in an international transfer which may involve one or more domestic transfers in the sender’s country, an international transfer and one or more domestic transfer’s in the recipient’s country before finally reaching the recipient’s account
Visa’s global head of solutions, Kevin Phalen, told “This week’s announcement is just the first step as we work towards a commercial launch of Visa B2B Connect. We are beginning to process bank-to-bank test transactions with select clients. Additional banks, including corporates, will follow soon.”
Visa’s existing partners, as well as future ones, can utilize the company’s application programming interface (API) to create their own platforms, according to a press release.
CRYPTOCURRENCY: The future of Currency
Virtual currencies are software based online payments whose units can be transferred between digital wallets without the need for a middleman such as a financial institution. They’re quickly being adapted by consumers as well as merchants of all shapes and sizes. Around the world, governments as well as financial institutions are evaluating virtual currencies to determine how they can fit into current financial structure and system. Meanwhile, technology providers have been rapidly putting together the tools to allow virtual currencies to be used for payments and other transactions.
Cryptocurrency are virtual currency. They are a medium of exchange, created and are stored electronically in the Blockchain. They use encryption techniques to control the creation of monetary units and to verify the transfer of funds. Bitcoin being the most traded and known Cryptocurrency. There are many other virtual currencies that might have a promising future in cyberspace. Some of them are:
Bitcoin is a currency, just like Dollars, Euro or Yen, but it is decentralized, digital money created, held and spent electronically around the world. Bitcoin is the original Cryptocurrency with the most liquidity and significant network effects. It also has brand name recognition around the world, with an eight-year track record.
Bitcoin first appeared in a 2008 white paper authored by a person, or persons using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. The white paper detailed an innovative peer to peer electronic cash system called Bitcoin that enabled online payments to be transferred directly, without an intermediary.
“Blockchain is to Bitcoin, what the internet is to email. A big electronic system, on top of which you can build applications. Currency is just one.” — Sally Davies, FT Technology Reporter

A time in life when you cannot decide that what happened to you was the best thing that happened or the worst thing.
Dilemma takes over to such a state that you are in a position where you just want the same person to show you,to tell you what’s wrong and what’s right.
But , you do not have that strength to ask for. Hurt to such depth that you do not want to ask for. Pain kills . You start hating that person but that soft corner doesn’t go so easily.
It’s just like two people on your shoulder .The angel and the Devil of you.
The angel knows it’s good for you to stay away and the devil says to get back.
The worst thing in the world is when you don’t even know the reason for all this.
Life is a basket that has all the kinds of fruits in it, the one you like the one you hate ,the one that makes you healthy and the one that spoils.
Choosing the right ones is an important aspect. And we usually select the attractive ones no matter how sour they are from inside.
Every one dreams of living in hostel for once in their life. Thinking about all that fun that happens in the closed rooms with loud music and crazy laughter coming out of the doors.
The messy room stuffed clothes and books,laptops and headphones,lipsticks and creams, and sexy girls wearing minimal clothes and the messy bed off course.
(Coz this is about a girls hostel)
It’s not that it’s fun all the time ,there are boring rooms when u literally having nothing to do than stare at the celing,nothing to talk to ur room partner though and finally u end up shopping something you do not need and then a dialogue is sure shot to come.. Paisa he Nai hai yaar…
But u also have beautiful evening not at the pub or disc but in the room when u just have nothing but to laugh at stupid topics.
Those crazy evenings when u give advice to other on relationships.
U have those stupid evenings when u search for something horror and end up screaming and shouting band kar band kar.
Those 10000000000…. of selfies which never get uploaded.
All those banging of doors and sitting in the washroom for long to tease others.
It’s a different life all together.
It’s amazing experience
It’s life moments to remember for ever.
