« Back to Glossary Index

 It is a tree structure in cryptography, where every leaf node has been labeled with the hash of a data block and each non-leaf node is labeled with the cryptographic hash of the labels of its child nodes. The hash trees permits efficient and secured verification of the blockchain contents, as each of the changes propagates upwards so that the verification can be done by looking at the top hash.
