The proposition of Blockchain is to decentralise information – where data exists across many servers instead of being managed by a single authority / platform.
With blockchain, data is immutable. Once a transaction is logged in the blockchain ledger, the data is permanent, indelible, and unalterable.
If data is immutable, what does this mean for data privacy & ownership?
