A Merkle Tree is a binary tree of hash values, where each leaf node represents a single piece of data. It is used to verify the integrity of large amounts of data efficiently. A hash function is like a fingerprint machine. It takes any input and produces a unique output, called a hash, that is much shorter than the input.
