Four basics behind a graph database are

Nodes: The primary data elements


Relationships: How two nodes are connected

Nodes may have multiple relationships


Properties: Attributes of a node or of a relationship

Cryptocurrencies as legal tender is the defacto Bitcoin and blockchain answer and use case.  It's a ledger. It's secure. I…
