Blockchain (or) Block chain
Technically blockchain is one variety of multinode data processing technique, specifically using inter-node communication technique.
Blockchain data records are not unalterable, but considered secured by design.
Blockchain is used in many crypto currencies as widely publicized. Also, used in certain private banking transactions and IoT applications.
In general majority of Blockchain applications are using open source vizualization techniques instead of Tableau. But, if somebody is REALLY looking for a FANCY integration with Tableau.
They should work hard to integrate using a component called the 'Web Data Connector'.
Web Data Connector
With the Web Data Connector SDK, you can unlock a world of data that's available over the web. In addition to using the dozens of data connectors that are already available in Tableau,
you can now create your own web data connector (WDC) that reads data from virtually any site that publishes data in JSON, XML, or HTML.
