A block holds many transactions logging the various exchanging of coins from one hand to another. A block chain is a straight line of these blocks chaining one after another all the way to the first block (known as the genesis block). Everyone that uses the blockchain has the same exact copy as everyone else, so that if any one person tries to alter any of the transaction, they will have to beat every other miner on Earth at a hash race in order to make their version of the blockchain the correct one.

Dude it’s this fuckin shit where if you want to send someone your shit you fuckin send it to literally fuckin everybody and they all be like yeah that’s his shit now, and when he wants to send that shit, fuckin does it all over again and like they can’t go back and change it because they would have to change all the fuckin blocks which fuck that.

You know what an old fashioned checkbook is? Every time you spend money or deposit money, you write it down as a line item on a page in the checkbook. When the page is full, you flip to the next page. Blockchain is like that.

In the blockchain, every transaction--every by and every sell--is logged, and when a block (which is like a page in a checkbook) is full, that block is added to the blockchain (which is like a never-ending checkbook).

What's so special about it? It's publicly viewable by anyone. If someone tries to fudge the numbers, all the other people can say, "nope, that's not correct, so it's not getting added to the block." That's why it's called a trustless system: no one has to trust anyone else. It's all out in the open and can't be cheated.
