Blockchain Governance

Blockchain Governance

2020-07-0204:54

Blockchains are decentralized systems. There is no single point of control or administration. In contrast to other IT systems, there is no admin in a blockchain. Instead, blockchains are governed.
Blockchains, depending on who can read the state and who can participate in block production (updating the state), could be classified in mainly two ways - Private or Public, and Permissionless or Permissioned.
Applications which use a decentralized backend (like a blockchain), are called Decentralized Applications or DApps.
