Merkle Tree and the Blockchain

How is merkle tree used in the blockchain?

Merkle tree has some implementation in the blockchain, but I would be stating two and explaining one.

  1. Block Header computation and block transaction proof
  2. NFT minting whitelisting
  1. Validate data integrity
  2. Take a very little disk space
  3. Tiny information across networks
  4. Efficient and non-time costly verification
  1. Verifying that a transaction was mined in a block would be very time consuming and computationally costly.
