Hashgraph: An Alternative to Blockchain for Distributed Ledgers?

I thought that blockchain was the only way to build distributed ledgers.  Seems like there is a new technology: hashgraph.  This article, Blockchain Just Became Obsolete: the Future is Hashgraph, helps you understand the difference between blockchain and hashgraph.  In particular, this 10 minute video is very helpful.

Remember that a distributed ledgar is an application or a use case.  Blockchain and hashgraph are technologies that are used to implement distributed ledgers.
