我们来用英文讨论区块链技术:使用“我想进一步阐明”短句

 

Have you heard of blockchain? You might think of bitcoin or digital currency. Well, blockchain is how bitcoin is traded and transferred. It’s a bit like Alipay or Paypal. But the difference is that blockchain is not a third-party payment company. There is no middle person. Transaction of bitcoin is done and recorded directly between the buyer and seller. When explaining complex topics such as blockchain, it is helpful to use “let me clarify” phrases to further break down and add comments as you go along. “Let me clarify” phrases allow you to go back and explain something over. You are essentially allowed to correct yourself if mistakes are made, or add something new to what you’ve already said.

你听说过区块链吗?你可能会想到比特币,即数码货币。区块链是比特币交易与转让的基础,类似于支付宝或是Paypal。但有别于它俩,区块链并非提供支付服务的第三方公司。通过区块链完成的交易不需要有第三方中介,它是买家与卖家之间直接完成交易。当就类似于区块链这么一个复杂的题目进行说明时,我们可使用“我想进一步阐明”英文短句来就题目逐步进行剖析,并且可适当地加入一些个人看法来加以说明。

使用“我想进一步阐明”英文短句来更好地剖析某题目

 

So what is blockchain technology? Well, the word “blockchain” is a bit self-descriptive. It is a technology that is based on blocks of information that are recorded, linked, and shared. Imagine telephone poles that carry phone signals from one house to the next. Then, imagine packages of digital information transferring between computers when emails are sent. While telephone lines need to be connected from one house to another for the communication to take place, emailing between computers do not need lines or clearly defined paths. Blockchain technology is a bit like emailing. You don’t need people to maintain telephone lines or anyone to oversee a network or system. Everything is done between transacting parties directly and it is instantaneous.

何为区块链?“区块链”其实是比较形象的名称。区块链技术指的是基于信息区块的,信息共享技术。每个区块分别记录了特定信息,这些信息区块相互叠加,并且是共享的。区块链技术不像固定电话通讯,它不需要有电话线连接,亦不需要有基础设备或是第三方系统支持。在区块链基础上,信息交易双方直接进行连接,并立马实现交易。

 

To explain a complex topic such as blockchain, use “let me clarify” phrases to help you do the following:

  • Add on an important detail;
  • Correct an idea;
  • Explain something further.

 

使用“我想进一步阐明”英文短句来讨论某复杂题目,比如区块链,可以帮你做到以下几点:

1。在说明过程中加入某重要细节

2。在说明过程中就某概念进行纠正

3。在说明过程中进一步解释某事实或情况

 

Blockchain is like a huge spreadsheet that anyone can access. Let me clarify, it is a spreadsheet that anyone who has a private digital key can access.

You can access the blockchain and make changes to the database or spreadsheet. Actually, what I meant to say is that you can add information to your “block” on the database or spreadsheet.

Changes cannot be made to the blockchain. To be clearer, I mean that only new “blocks” of information are added to the spreadsheet. Then the information is locked away and stored.

Conclusion

Blockchain is a new technology that has become more popular and well-known due to the rising popularity of bitcoins. Blockchain is how bitcoins are traded and transferred. But blockchain is also much more than just trading bitcoins. It can change the way we do business, handle transactions, make and honor contracts. Because blockchain is such a complicated topic, it is helpful to use “let me clarify” phrases to make sure you can clearly explain and add to the information as you go along.
