Does each block connect to the one that happened immediately before and after it (chain) in the entire “platform,” meaning time is the only binding force, or is it that each block connects to the transaction before and after it that was made by a unique sender and recipient? I hope that question makes sense. My guess is it’s the former. This question will probably be answered later on in the course, I’m sure.
