The key technique behind the Bitcoin is blockchain, which has emerged as great innovation with a wide range of applications. The blockchain is a public ledger or a public database that maintained by all participants of the Bitcoin network. All transactions that have ever occurred in the Bitcoin network are stored and recorded in the blockchain. The main feature of the blockchain is that it does not rely on a trusted third party, i.e. central trusted authority. This paper presents a survey about blockchain software architectures and the applications that benefit from this invention.
