The Keyhole team is proud to announce the publishing of a new white paper: Blockchain For The Enterprise. 

While Bitcoin is on the minds of the general public worldwide, blockchain is on the minds of information technology professionals. It is the underpinning technology of the powerful and popular cryptocurrency. What exactly is blockchain and how will it help my business? That is what this white paper seeks to answer.

In the most simple terms, a blockchain is a distributed data system for keeping a ledger of immutable data transactions.
