        I am extremely new to this so please pardon my question if it is a dumb thing to ask. I genuinely don’t know the difference here and when I read about both, at least in my understanding, they sound like they are one in the same thing. If they aren’t the same, can someone explain what the difference is?

          The easiest way to explain this is that blockchain is the mechanics that crypto runs on. It is a technology that can and will do other things in the future for privacy and more. Without blockchain, crypto wouldn’t be able to exist.

            Yeah, Blockchain is the actual technology that has made crypto possible. This is not all that it can do either. This is believed to be a major component in the future of technology across the board!

              I hope more people realize this because there is growing concerns against the technology but I think this is from people who know little to nothing about it and think it only has to do with crypto.
