A hash is a unique, fixed-size alphanumeric string that's generated by a mathematical algorithm. Hashes are used to represent data in a condensed, secure form, which is useful for verifying the integrity of data without revealing the original data itself.

In blockchain technology, hashes play an essential role in securing the network. In particular, every block in a blockchain has a unique hash that identifies it and its contents. The hash is generated by applying a hash function to the block's data, which includes the transactions that were recorded in the block, as well as the hash of the previous block in the chain.

By including the hash of the previous block in the hash of the current block, the blockchain creates an immutable ledger that is resistant to tampering. If someone were to change the data in one block, the hash of that block would change, causing all subsequent block hashes to change as well. This makes it virtually impossible to alter data on the blockchain without detection.

Some common hash functions used in blockchain technology include SHA-256 and Scrypt.

Proof of Attendance Protocol (POAP)
Proof of Attendance Protocol (POAP) is a blockchain-based system that allows event organizers to issue and manage unique digital tokens to attendees, providing them with proof of their participation or attendance at an event. POAP leverages the transparency and immutability of blockchain technology to create verifiable records of attendance.
Hard Cap
In the context of cryptocurrency and blockchain projects, a hard cap refers to the maximum amount of funds that can be raised during an initial coin offering (ICO) or a token sale. This means that once the project has raised the predetermined amount of funds, the sale of tokens or coins will come to an end, and no more tokens or coins will be available for purchase.
Angel Investor
An angel investor is an individual or group of individuals who provide funding to startups and early-stage companies in exchange for ownership equity or convertible debt. Angel investors are typically wealthy individuals with a high net worth, and are often entrepreneurs themselves who are looking to invest in promising startups.
Mainnet, short for "main network," refers to the production-ready and fully operational version of a blockchain protocol. It is the live and official version of the blockchain where transactions are executed, blocks are validated, and consensus rules are enforced. Here's some more information about the mainnet:
