Too Long; Didn't Read
A blockchain is a digital ledger in which each entry is immutable. Once an entry is added to a blockchain, it contains all the data from all the previous nodes in a ledger, meaning that it cannot be changed no matter what you do. The current approach to plagiarism detection is accurate and reliable, allowing universities to process large amounts of text data while making few errors in plagiarism assessments. As an illustration, imagine a situation in which an entry in an academic text is added in a blockchain database including a timestamp and information about authors.
