How it works?
The entire Bitcoin network relies on block chain technology which is a publicly shared ledger. All transactions are included in the block chain so wallets can calculate their balance and new transactions can be verified to be spending cryptocurrency that is actually owned by the spender while the block chain enforces security with cryptography. A transaction is a value transfer between crypto wallets that gets transferred to the block chain. Wallets are a secret string of data called a private key, which is used to assign transactions, providing a mathematical proof that they have come from the owner of the wallet. The signature also prevents the transaction from being altered or introduced by fraud or charge back by anybody once it has been issued.
