Difference between Blockchain and SQL/NoSQL Databases

Technology Dec 23, 2020

I am researching using blockchain as a database instead of the traditional SQL/NoSQL that is commonly used today. I originally chose blockchain more for security purposes then for mining cryptocurrencies.

I was introduced to Bitcoin in 2010 but at the time, the value of Bitcoin did not justify the electricity and hardware costs. Still, I was intrigued by the technology behind blockchain.

I ran across the following video since I always get asked why I would use blockchain over a traditional database using SQL/NoSQL. The diagram below is probably one of the best I have seen thus far. You can also watch the video below.
