How to implement a Blockchain Structure?

We saw the use of Blockchain Structures in Decentralized Consensus Systems. And we even detailed how these structures prevent data tampering. But how to implement a Blockchain in real life? Let’s take a break from concepts & algorithms to describe actual code. We’re going to define three core functions to implement a Blockchain Structure: init, append and add. This article is the first in a series that’ll describe the implementation for each of the [3 pillars] of Blockchain: blockchain, P2P, and Proof Of.
