  • block (p.1): batch of ordered transactions, potentially containing ones of an invalid nature, that is delivered to the peers for validation and committal. (†2218)
  • blockchain (p.1): implementation of distributed ledger technology that records blocks of data in chain transactions and exchanges that take place in a peer-to-peer network. (†2214)
  • blockchain (p.1 ): ever-extending series of blocks that grows as new transactions are confirmed as part of a new block. · Note: Each new block is chained to the existing blockchain by a cryptographic technique. (†2217)
  • chaincode (p.2): persistent logic deployed onto a blockchain that encodes the data and rules for specific types of network transactions and which is executed when a transaction is made against the blockchain. (†2227)
  • committer (p.2): peer role, where the peer appends validated transactions to the ledger. · Note: A peer can act as both an endorser and committer, but in more regulated circumstances might only serve as a committer. (†2226)
  • distributed ledger technology (p.1): Database technology in which records are stored in sequence in a continuous ledger, spread across multiple locations. Records can only be added when multiple participants agree to do so. (†2215)
  • endorser (p.2): peer role where the peer is responsible for simulating transactions and in turn preventing unstable or non-deterministic transactions from passing through the network. · Note: All endorser peers are also committer peers. (†2225)
  • genesis block (p.1): first block in a blockchain which can also serve as configuration to initialize the blockchain. (†2224)
  • ledger (p.2): append-only blockchain transaction log managed by peers which stores the ordered transaction batches. (†2222)
  • mining (p.2): process of verifying transactions and contract execution on the blockchain. (†2221)
  • node (p.1; s.v. "peer node"): component that executes and maintains a ledger of transactions. (†2216)
  • permissioned blockchain (p.1; s.v. "permissioned network"): blockchain network where any node is required to maintain a member identity on the network. End users must be authorized and authenticated in order to use the network. (†2219)
  • permissionless blockchain (p.2; s.v. "permissionless network"): blockchain network where nodes and users are essentially anonymous and where any user can use the network without authentication or authorization. (†2220)
  • smart contract (p.2): set of business terms embedded into a blockchain and executed with transactions. · Note: smart contract can also include a digital representation of a set of business rules and defines conditions under which transactions occur. · Note 2: smart contract is implemented using chaincode.
