Blockchain decentralization

Blockchain decentralization is the state of a blockchain such that no one single entity has control of it and has no central infrastructural point.

Blockchain decentralization is the state of a blockchain such that no one single entity has control of it and has no central infrastructural point. This means that control is handled and managed by a network of computers located around the world. Because the structure is not centralized, there is no central point of failure, i.e. if one part fails, the other points would continue to function.
