A blockchain is accounting software, that creates a growing list of records and called blocks, which are linked using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data.

Blockchain is said to be very secure because its data is resistant to modification. It is an open, distributed ledger that backers believe can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way. It is usually managed by a peer-to-peer network.
