Blockchain is the technology underpinning cryptocurrencies. Whether cryptocurrencies fail or succeed as we currently know them blockchain is here for the foreseeable future. May this short video help you to understand the basics of what a block chain is.

To actually watch the Bitcoin blockchain transactions live here are our three favourite sites.

  • The Bitbonkers site allows you to see transactions represented as balls.
  • The Bitlisten site when set to instrument “planet” is a relaxing soundscape.
  • The TxStreet site gives a visualisation of transactions getting on busses.
