What Exactly Is The Blockchain?

The value of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have been on a bit of a wild ride over the past several weeks. And that’s led more people to pay attention to this currency system and ask questions about it — including, what is the blockchain?

To answer that one, The Show's Mark Brodie got in touch with Jonathan Levin via Skype. He’s the co-founder of the firm Chainanalysis, which calls itself “the leading provider of anti-money laundering software for Bitcoin.”

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
