Blockchain is not suitable for database. The special attribute that makes blockchain unique, is that records cannot be altered. Also the records are signed by the person who adds the data. Blockchain is a ledger, with a special hash field, that is generated, when the record is confirmed by the “miners”. A database needs edit and delete record functionality. Blockchain does not allow that.
