Blockchains are a subcategory of distributed ledger technology. The key difference between a blockchain and the transaction records of the past is that blockchains are applied uses of distributed ledgers. Where a standard ledger exists on one computer or server, a distributed ledger exists and is updated simultaneously on every computer in the network. A blockchain is, therefore, a type of decentralized ledger, which operates on a peer-to-peer network.
