Bitcoin Blockchain

The bitcoin blockchain is a public ledger that records bitcoin transactions. It is implemented as a chain of blocks, each block containing a hash of the previous block up to the genesis block of the chain. A network of communicating nodes running bitcoin software maintains the blockchain. Transactions of the form payer X sends Y bitcoins to payee Z are broadcast to this network using readily available software applications.

Network nodes can validate transactions, add them to their copy of the ledger, and then broadcast these ledger additions to other nodes. To achieve independent verification of the chain of ownership each network node stores its own copy of the blockchain. At varying intervals of time averaging to every 10 minutes, a new group of accepted transactions, called a block, is created, added to the blockchain, and quickly published to all nodes, without requiring central oversight.


Bitcoin Ownership

In the blockchain, bitcoins are registered to bitcoin addresses. Creating a bitcoin address requires picking a random valid private key and computing the corresponding bitcoin address. Moreover, the number of valid private keys is so vast that it is extremely unlikely someone will compute a key-pair that is already in use and has funds. The vast number of valid private keys makes it unfeasible that brute force could be used to compromise a private key. To be able to spend their bitcoins, the owner must know the corresponding private key and digitally sign the transaction. The network verifies the signature using the public key; the private key is never revealed.

If the private key is lost, the bitcoin network will not recognize any other evidence of ownership. The coins are then unusable, and effectively lost. To ensure the security of bitcoins, the private key must be kept secret. If the private key is revealed to a third party, e.g. through a data breach, the third party can use it to steal any associated bitcoins. Losses have been enormous at selected cryptocurrency exchanges over the years.


Bitcoin Mining

Bitoin mining is a record-keeping service done through the use of computer processing power. Miners keep the blockchain consistent, complete, and unalterable by repeatedly grouping newly broadcast transactions into a block, which is then broadcast to the network and verified by recipient nodes. Each block contains a SHA-256 cryptographic hash of the previous block, thus linking it to the previous block and giving the blockchain its name.

Every 2,016 blocks (approximately 14 days at roughly 10 min per block), the difficulty target is adjusted based on the network's recent performance, with the aim of keeping the average time between new blocks at ten minutes. In this way the system automatically adapts to the total amount of mining power on the network.

The proof-of-work system, alongside the chaining of blocks, makes modifications of the blockchain extremely difficult, as an attacker must modify all subsequent blocks in order for the modifications of one block to be accepted. As new blocks are mined all the time, the difficulty of modifying a block increases as time passes and the number of subsequent blocks (also called confirmations of the given block) increases.

The successful miner finding the new block is allowed by the rest of the network to reward themselves with newly created bitcoins and transaction fees. To claim the reward, a special transaction called a coinbase is included with the processed payments. All bitcoins in existence have been created in such coinbase transactions. The bitcoin protocol specifies that the reward for adding a block will be halved every 210,000 blocks. Eventually, the reward will decrease to zero, and the limit of 21 million bitcoins will be reached. The record keeping will then be rewarded solely by transaction fees.

Cryptocurrency Wallets

Full clients verify transactions directly by downloading a full copy of the blockchain. They are the most secure and reliable way of using the network, as trust in external parties is not required. Full clients check the validity of mined blocks, preventing them from transacting on a chain that breaks or alters network rules. Because of its size and complexity, downloading and verifying the entire blockchain is not suitable for all computing devices.

Lightweight clients consult full clients to send and receive transactions without requiring a local copy of the entire blockchain (simplified payment verification – SPV). This makes lightweight clients much faster to set up and allows them to be used on low-power, low-bandwidth devices such as smartphones. When using a lightweight wallet, however, the user must trust the server to a certain degree, as it can report faulty values back to the user. Lightweight clients follow the longest blockchain and do not ensure it is valid, requiring trust in miners.


Physical Wallets

Physical wallets store the credentials necessary to spend bitcoins offline and can be as simple as a paper printout of the private key. A paper wallet is created with a keypair generated on a computer with no internet connection; the private key is written or printed onto the paper and then erased from the computer. The paper wallet can then be stored in a safe physical location for later retrieval. Bitcoins stored using a paper wallet are said to be in cold storage.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, the founders of the Gemini Trust Co. exchange, reported that they had cut their paper wallets into pieces and stored them in envelopes distributed to safe deposit boxes across the United States. Through this system, the theft of one envelope would neither allow the thief to steal any bitcoins nor deprive the rightful owners of their access to them. Thus, they created a physical 'blockchain-like' system to safely store their keys.

Physical wallets can also take the form of metal token coins with a private key accessible under a security hologram in a recess struck on the reverse side. The security hologram self-destructs when removed from the token, showing that the private key has been accessed. Originally, these tokens were struck in brass and other base metals, but later used precious metals as bitcoin grew in value and popularity.

Another type of physical wallet called a hardware wallet keeps credentials offline while facilitating transactions. The hardware wallet acts as a computer peripheral and signs transactions as requested by the user, who must press a button on the wallet to confirm that they intended to make the transaction. Hardware wallets never expose their private keys, keeping bitcoins in cold storage even when used with computers that may be compromised by malware.

Tyler Winklevoss, CEO and co-founder of Gemini, and Cameron Winklevoss, president and co-founder of Gemini, join Real Vision CEO Raoul Pal to discuss how they first discovered Bitcoin, their exploration into other crypto assets, and market psychology.

Vitalik Buterin - Ethereum


Vitalik Buterin, founder and inventor, introduces Ethereum at the Bitcoin Miami conference 2014. Vitalik related that the project stands to change how the world relates to currency and financial instruments.

The Blockchain Explained


A blockchain is a method of storing a list of entries, which cannot be changed easily after they are created. This also applies to the list itself. This is done by using several concepts from cryptography, including digital signatures and hash functions.

Smart Contracts


Smart Contracts are much like legal contracts except instead of legal language defining the terms, computer code dictates the contract’s terms. Unlike traditional contracts which require a court to mediate disputes, smart contracts are self-executing within the blockchain.

Ethereum

Ethereum is a decentralized, open-source blockchain featuring smart contract functionality. Ether (ETH) is the native cryptocurrency of the platform. It is the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. Ethereum is the most actively used blockchain, proposed by programmer Vitalik Buterin. Development was crowdfunded in 2014, and the network went live on 30 July 2015, with 72 million coins premined. The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) can execute scripts and run decentralized applications. Ethereum is used for decentralized finance, and has been utilized for many initial coin offerings. In 2016, a hacker exploited a flaw in a third-party project called The DAO and stole $50 million of Ether. As a result, the Ethereum community voted to hard fork the blockchain to reverse the theft and Ethereum Classic (ETC) continued as the original chain. Ethereum has started implementing a series of upgrades called Ethereum 2.0, which includes a transition to proof of stake and an increase in transaction throughput using sharding.


Smart contracts

A smart contract is a computer program, or transaction protocol, which is intended to automatically execute, control or document legally relevant events and actions according to the terms of a contract or an agreement. The objectives of smart contracts are the reduction of need in trusted intermediators, arbitrations and enforcement costs, fraud losses, as well as the reduction of malicious and accidental exceptions. Vending machines are mentioned as the oldest piece of technology equivalent to smart contract implementation. Since Ethereum, various cryptocurrencies support scripting languages which allow for more advanced smart contracts between untrusted parties. Smart contracts should be distinguished from smart legal contracts. The latter refers to a traditional natural language legally-binding agreement which has certain terms expressed and implemented in machine-readable code.

Career Outlook

As you might imagine, tech skills are crucial to landing a job in the cyptocurrency market, as many job listings call for hard skills, including Java, machine learning, Python, artificial intelligence (AI), C/C++, Node.js, and Amazon web services. However, there are opportunities for candidates with soft skills, such as communication, creativity, and problem-solving, and who are entrepreneurial, self-motivated, and team players.

Make new financial landing pages, guiding to our youtube videos included, and content for cryptocurrencies, partner with best trading platforms like Gemini as affiliates. also, if investing in new coins pre-trading, my publicity and explanation may help the coin increase in value, thus building-in a support structure to my videos and landing pages.

A team forms to develop software for some application. Seeking capital, they release a new coin. Initially, there is just an idea, some software, their reputation, potential, and they are hungry for publicity, initial investors, so they make it attractive to put money down. Pre-trading period finishes, and the coin is publicly traded, and various exchanges pick up the coin.

Can start cooperative, and Thai families can grow 6 plants.

consider cyclical cryptos like bitball, jumping in and out. try technical trading, learning indicators, choose favorites to hold longer term, and have price points to enter, if they come back to earth. even if not making any money, will get me involved, and move some cash out of the bank.

main idea now is to live somewhere and start turning cash savings into useful objects. Determine a comfortable level of risk going forward. Can be small at first, like hiring a girl and starting YouTube, or building grow houses out of plastic. The girl can be in charge of her own projects, and keep the money.

money invested in things that bring return, not only cryptocurrency in the world. arrange a small studio to make videos, buy materials, subscriptions to open content, guitar, second computer, microphone, editing software, thumbnail maker, photoshop, residence, water purification, enclosed, organic hydroponic food production.

start putting together a list of crypto coins that represent areas likely to take off, and watch the graphs if another fall. further, start to learn the functional areas that make up the space, and select the ‘gorillas in the room,’ that all future investors will notice first.

As Ethereum started to take off recently, it was pretty clear that most of the top 50 coins that had merit like Polkadot and Cardano would follow the obvious examples of Bitcoin and Ethereum. Watch for market movements, then buy those others on my pre-selected list that lag behind. With so many people locked down, other investors are going to scour the many coins looking for the next movers. Rather than seeking 10x, bet on winners, looking for cyclical moves.


Finally, select some new coins or unknowns with low market caps. Promote them myself, and follow some instructors, like Sheldon Evans, a 25-year old rising YouTube star.

Crypto

one thing both chess and crypto prices show is that some opportunities are time-sensitive, and if slow to take action, the chance may pass.

look at teams behind projects, learn how to research, look at charts, wait till see cycles, not jumping in and out by guessing. better to like projects and hold for years, as a hedge against fiat, printed currency. Learn how to spot new ico, ieo, ido, and buy early, then promote online. in beginning, just need scant interest and the coin can go up multiples, don’t get attached, and have an exit price in mind, keep researching, rather than stressing over one particular coin.

may seem like everything just boomed, but can seek out new coins or good applications with great teams. may get less return, but can bet on multiple coins, and keep looking, learning.

by looking at older youtube channels and articles, can see who was correct in crypto, and listen to their advice. consider it betting, even if placed 50 bets on various coins at 1,000 dollars each, would learn a lot, risking about 50k, likely not lose all, compare to inviting Matt or supporting Brad or helping Kan. the point is that I may be very good at understanding the underlying values as well as predicting market sentiment. for example, I was pretty confident about ethereum at 145, and was correct. also, saw potential with sophia, ai robot coin due to news interest online, and was correct again.

be prepared to lose money learning the game. also, will force participation and lessen regret. note that I don’t have to be correct all the time, coins that work out will cover unfounded wagers. a numbers game, and I excel at math. also, a lot of psychology and research, learning fast and share with others as I go. start courses on udemy.

look at the way Sheldon Evans teaches on youtube, also basic youtube or teaching presentation skills like using split screen, pointer and highlighting webpages or things on his computer while talking.

unfortunately, as with any highly profitable venture, there are a lot of bad apples in the crypto investing arena, trying to manipulate unknowledgeable people into putting money in frivolous or unworthy investments. must educate both sides, the opportunities as well as the pitfalls.

by starting communities online around one altcoin, can generate interest and share education, not just on that coin. by investing in an unknown coin, but that has merit to discuss, can surely raise price of the coin if small-cap as the community grows.

Low Cap Altcoin Gems With 100x Potential | Cryptocurrency Top Picks, Sheldon Evans

can start a crypto youtube channel for minor coins, and keep track on kooksta like pat flynn. finance topic so should do well. especially the reasoning behind why a particular coin has value or may appeal to investors, not just rehash top 100 coins.

very important in general to teach people about investing, crypto and the dangers of being too passive, as investing leads to financial security, and keeps maximum opportunities available, especially after you earn some money, and have savings to worry about

e-sports and gaming have huge audiences viewing.

if market cap is small enough, just my encouragement if reaching a sufficient number of people may increase the coin price. still have new projects coming out today, 6,000 altcoins now. regulation increasing in some countries but not all.

research and find out who most-subscribed crypto channels on youtube. discussion comments reveal minds who are subscribing and participating. what they are concerned about and fills in detail. can download youtube audio, use speech to text, and gain original text due to transcription errors. use for landing pages.

if do a youtube channel and it becomes popular, coins may reach out to us, giving us crypto, as well as offering video content that they produce, explaining their offering, for our promotional mentions and analysis to our audience.

Bitcoin is a cryptographic representational system that allows transfer of control of Coins using an open-source blockchain implementation invented in 2008, by an unknown person or group of people using the name Satoshi Nakamoto. The utilization of the cryptography as a digital currency began use in 2009. There are distributed ledgers of transactions that are verified by miners confirming blocks, seeking 64-digit hexadecimal numbers, within the framework of a system-dependent reduction of bitcoin over time or due to the number of blocks. Once the chain is established, it's hard to go back and change a block because of processing power restraints, which stabilizes the chain and solves the double-payment problem.

The bitcoin blockchain contains a public record of all bitcoin transactions. Each time a trade is made through a cryptocurrency platform like Coinbase, the details of the transaction are coded and broadcast, along with other transactions, to a vast network of users called bitcoin miners. Miners compete to add the next car to the train by bundling up a bunch of transactions into “blocks.” Miners solve a computational problem (called “proof of work”) that assigns the block an identifying code (a hash). The “winning” block is distributed to, and verified by, all the other miners in the network and is added to the blockchain. Only one car can be added to the train at any given time, and each one takes ~10 minutes on average to verify and attach.

Vitaly Dmitriyevich "Vitalik" Buterin is a co-founder and inventor of Ethereum, described as a "decentralised mining network and software development platform rolled into one" that facilitates the creation of new cryptocurrencies and programs that share a single blockchain (a cryptographic transaction ledger). Etheurm allows new applications and new coins to be created on the framework of the Ethereum blockchain.

Given the success of America's Got Talent (AGT), The Voice, American Idol, and international licensing, as well as the lockdowns around the world, and migration of music and video licensing to online distribution (Spotify, iStore, Google play, and online gaming, it stands to reason that online competitions (Software Coding, Engineering Gadgets, Gaming, Animation, Music, Dance, Modeling) will generate a lot of submissions, and in the old, centralized model, the owners of the competition will take control of the licensing and the participants get very little, if anything, particularly the lines of people auditioning that never get selected. ContestCoin changes this model, so that all particpants benefit according to the revenue share that they drive.

Licensing issues, copyright issues, may be better to have a multi-user game that people are competing on, or a animated music video that people are submitting videos of them dancing to.
