Commerce is the economic activity that consists of the transfer and exchange of goods and services (assets) between people or between other entities in the economy. Since the existence of commerce, the transactions generated on the assets, that is, the purchase, sale and/or movement of the same, have been recorded in different media: the master book. Master books that with the passing of time have gone through different formats and have ended up digitized in databases in information systems. Each entity/company has its own master book that reflects its 'truth' of the transaction. This isolation generates many inefficiencies in an increasingly complex, internationalized trade, more connected by the Internet, where companies exchange assets even virtually, making a greater number of interactions and with an increasingly global impact.
The first blockchain was conceptualized by a person (or group of people) known as Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. The design was implemented the following year by Nakamoto as a core component of the bitcoin of cryptocurrency, where it serves as a public ledger for all network transactions.
If you come to the course, we will see if this young technology that is currently 12 years old can help entities, companies and the social sector to gain exponential efficiency in this world that is hyperconnected by the Internet.
