The Bitcoin and Blockchain Technology Explained
A block chain is a transaction database shared by all nodes participating in a system based on the Bitcoin protocol. A full copy of a currency's block chain contains every transaction ever executed in the currency. With this information, one can find out how much value belonged to each address at any point in history. ------------------------------------------------------------------- BUY BITCOIN SAFELY HERE: http://bit.ly/BuyBitcoinNow ------------------------------------------------------------------- REGISTER FOR A COINBASE ACCOUNT: http://bit.ly/CoinbaseBitcoinSignup ------------------------------------------------------------------- Every block contains a hash of the previous block. This has the effect of creating a chain of blocks from the genesis block to the current block. Each block is guaranteed to come after the previous block chronologically because the previous block's hash would otherwise not be known. Each block is also computationally impractical to modify once it has been in the chain for a while because every block after it would also have to be regenerated. These properties are what make double-spending of bitcoins very difficult. The block chain is the main innovation of Bitcoin. Honest generators only build onto a block (by referencing it in blocks they create) if it is the latest block in the longest valid chain. "Length" is calculated as total combined difficulty of that chain, not number of blocks, though this distinction is only important in the context of a few potential attacks. A chain is valid if all of the blocks and transactions within it are valid, and only if it starts with the genesis block. For any block on the chain, there is only one path to the genesis block. Coming from the genesis block, however, there can be forks. One-block forks are created from time to time when two blocks are created just a few seconds apart. When that happens, generating nodes build onto whichever one of the blocks they received first. Whichever block ends up being included in the next block becomes part of the main chain because that chain is longer. More serious forks have occurred after fixing bugs that required backward-incompatible changes. Blocks in shorter chains (or invalid chains) are not used for anything. When the bitcoin client switches to another, longer chain, all valid transactions of the blocks inside the shorter chain are re-added to the pool of queued transactions and will be included in another block. The reward for the blocks on the shorter chain will not be present in the longest chain, so they will be practically lost, which is why a network-enforced 100-block maturation time for generations exists. These blocks on the shorter chains are often called "orphan" blocks. This is because the generation transactions do not have a parent block in the longest chain, so these generation transactions show up as orphan in the listtransactions RPC call. Several pools have misinterpreted these messages and started calling their blocks "orphans". In reality, these blocks have a parent block, and might even have children. Because a block can only reference one previous block, it is impossible for two forked chains to merge. • How do Bitcoin Transactions Work? http://www.coindesk.com/information/how-do-bitcoin-transactions-work/ ------------------------------------------------------------------- DID YOU LIKE THIS VIDEO? ------------------------------------------------------------------- Enjoy this video?

Blockchain/Bitcoin for beginners 6: blocks and mining, content and creation of bitcoin blocks
In this video we introduce the basic concepts behind how new blocks are created in the Bitcoin blockchain. We start by taking another look at the blockchain.info website to see some sample blocks and then to a quick screencast explaining how new, unconfirmed transactions are collected by mining nodes and included in new transaction blocks, whose header needs to be hashed along with a random number to produce an output hash meeting a set requirement. I mention that the requirement is that the generated hash starts with a specified number of leading zeros...this is a slight (and very common) simplification, the reality is that the hash must be LESS than or equal to a specic 256 bit binary number.

What is Block (Bitcoin Block) - Blockchain - Explained
Block (Bitcoin Block) Blocks are files where data pertaining to the Bitcoin network is permanently recorded. A block records some or all of the most recent Bitcoin transactions that have not yet entered any prior blocks. Thus a block is like a page of a ledger or record book. Each time a block is ‘completed’, it gives way to the next block in the blockchain. A block is thus a permanent store of records which, once written, cannot be altered or removed.

How transactions are verified in Bitcoin Blockchain - Longest chain rule explained
How transactions are verified in Bitcoin Blockchain - Longest chain rule explained Watch our earlier Blockchain videos Blockchain Simplified: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWAYveDotb0&t=1s Blockchain Technology explained: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVLIentRlIk&t=1s Have you wondered how transaction get approved in a Bitcoin block chain? Why you need to wait for 3 to 6 confirmations for the transactions to appear in your wallet. This video attempts to explain how a Bitcoin transaction is approved and the process behind it. Let’s assume Mr. Gobish transferred Bitcoin worth 100$ from one crypto exchange to another. Once he does the transfer, the transaction message is sent to the network and passed around all the network participants which are also called nodes. This is added to the transaction pool. Currently, the transaction is in an ‘unconfirmed’ state. All the transactions in the transaction pool will be in an unconfirmed status. Now we will understand who is a miner. In simple words, those who validate new transactions and record them on the global ledger of Blockchain are called miners and this activity is called mining. To make it simple, let’s assume there are currently 3 miners who are trying to confirm the transactions from transaction pool including Gobish’s transaction of $ 100. Normally miners will select those transactions which will generate a higher transaction fees for them. Currently, the numbers of confirmed blocks in the Blockchain public ledger is 998. Once the miners identify that the 998th block is a valid block they will try to create a candidate block by adding unconfirmed transactions from the transaction pool. Now these miners are trying to add the 999th block. To add the blocks they have to solve a complex mathematical problem. This is known as Proof of Work (POW). Let’s assume all the 3 miners were able to solve this problem and have Proof of Work. Now we have 3 different candidate blocks, let’s call them 999 A, 999B and 999C Now which of these block will form part of the valid block will depend upon the longest chain rule. Let’s understand what is longest chain rule is. Now there are other miners who are trying to create other valid blocks and based upon the speed by which a block is created others miners will keep on adding their blocks on top of the earlier blocks. Here in this case Minor C had a better processor which was able to create a block faster than the miner A and B and hence new blocks were created on top of the block 999C. Now the longest chain is the one created by 999C and it will be keep on adding other blocks like 1000, 1001 and so on as miner C solved the proof of work before miner A and B. So what happens to the blocks 999A and 999B? They have to create the Proof of Work again with new set of transactions from the transaction base. Each confirmations represent adding each block. Each confirmation will take on an average of around 10 minutes or more per block. Applying the longest chain rule and proof of work, unconfirmed transaction will become a confirmed transaction and added to the Blockchain ledger Once the blocks are added miner will receive a transactions fees and block fees which will be the new Bitcoin created as an incentive for approving the transactions. Block rewards will be reducing every year and in the end only transaction fees will be there as new Bitcoins will not be created. We will get in to more details about mining and the incentives in our subsequent video.

The History of Bitcoin
The History of Bitcoin - https://blockgeeks.com/ We’ll start at the very beginning by understanding the history of blockchain. The very first blockchain in the world was Bitcoin. An anonymous person or group known as Satoshi Nakamoto published a document in an online cryptography forum in November 2008 and revealed the first details of how it would work, describing it as a “peer-to-peer electronic cash system”. The whitepaper is available today at bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf. It allows any 2 people to pseudonymously send money to each other no matter where they are in the world. It is a borderless currency. The main benefit of Bitcoin is that it does not require any centralized authority or institution to operate. This is in contrast to today’s centralized financial systems that depend on the existence of a central bank or government to mint money. If for any reason the central authority were to shutdown, the money would become worthless. In a decentralized system like Bitcoin, there is no central authority and the system can continue to operate as long as there are members in its peer-to-peer network. The goal of the whitepaper was to describe how the different parts of the Bitcoin protocol would operate and be kept secure. A new type of database, called a blockchain, would keep track of a single history of all Bitcoin transactions and it would be maintained by everyone in the network. The database would be publicly available for anyone to view and inspect, and anyone can download a copy of the same database. This provides data redundancy and makes sure the data is never lost, but also provides a way for anyone to verify the transactions in the database themselves. A block in the database just stores a sequence of transactions, and a sequence of blocks is called a blockchain. Each block is identified by an incrementing number and a unique Sha-256 hash. The hash for a block is calculated using the transactions inside it, as well as the previous block’s hash, which forms a chain of hashes. The data in the blocks is secured using a cryptographic algorithm called proof-of-work, which also keeps all members of the network and the database in sync to prevent double-spending. In this context, preventing double-spending means preventing anyone from spending money they dont have. Proof-of-work is used to generate new blocks for the database, also known as mining, and the reward for mining a new block is given to the miner by creating new Bitcoins in the system. This is the only way new Bitcoins can be created. Anyone on the network can be a miner and a new block is mined roughly every 10 minutes, which includes the latest set of verified transactions. The first release for Bitcoin was version 0.1 written in C++ by Satoshi and published on SourceForge in January 2009 under the open-source MIT license. Anyone could download the source code and run it to join the network, also known as becoming a node in the network. This is the original version 0.1 source code written by Satoshi. We can see the hard-coded genesis block, which is the very first block in the chain. The hash for the block can be verified by using any Bitcoin blockchain explorer. Let’s copy and paste this hash into the blockchain explorer available at blockchain.info. We can see that this hash is for block number 0, and that it has only one transaction in it which is the mining reward, and the reward amount of 50 Bitcoin was given to this Bitcoin address. We can also see this 50 Bitcoin reward for the genesis block in the original source code. The genesis block is a special case needed to start the blockchain and is the only block that is hard-coded, whereas every subsequent block is calculated using proof-of-work. Satoshi’s motivation for creating Bitcoin is revealed in the piece of data he included in the genesis block: a newspaper headline from The Times that read ‘Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks’. The date of the newspaper is proof that the genesis block was created on or after Jan 3 2009. Satoshi developed the source code mostly himself up until mid-2010, when he handed it off to the open-source community. It is now maintained under the project called Bitcoin Core. The software is currently at version 0.15.1 and is available for download at bitcoin.org. This is still the most popular Bitcoin client, and its estimated that there are over 10 thousand nodes running the Bitcoin network today using various clients. Satoshi disappeared from public view in late 2010, his identity still unknown to this day. The only way someone could prove that they are Satoshi is by using the same encryption keys used when posting the original whitepaper in the online cryptography forum.

Analyzing Blockchain and Bitcoin Transaction Data as Graph
Blockchain technology and Bitcoin will potentially revolutionize business transactions. Blockchain offers a robust, decentralized platform for privacy and trust. It underlies the digital crypto-currency Bitcoin, which can be exchanged freely and anonymously, without a central authority. Bitcoin transactions - recorded publicly, provide an invaluable dataset to gain insight into the behavior of digital currency and the underlying Blockchain technology. Blocks, transactions with potential multiple inputs and outputs, and flow of bitcoins between addresses, form a sophisticated real-time graph. This talk details a pipeline used to gather bitcoin transaction data and analyze it with powerful graph cloud database technologies.

How Bitcoin Works in 5 Minutes. (Technical)
How does Bitcoin work? This is a question that often causes confusion. Here's a quick explanation! The basics for a new user As a new user, you can get started with Bitcoin without understanding the technical details. Once you have installed a Bitcoin wallet on your computer or mobile phone, it will generate your first Bitcoin address and you can create more whenever you need one. You can disclose your addresses to your friends so that they can pay you or vice versa. In fact, this is pretty similar to how email works, except that Bitcoin addresses should only be used once. Bitcoin Balances - block chain The block chain is a shared public ledger on which the entire Bitcoin network relies. All confirmed transactions are included in the block chain. This way, Bitcoin wallets can calculate their spendable balance and new transactions can be verified to be spending bitcoins that are actually owned by the spender. The integrity and the chronological order of the block chain are enforced with cryptography. Transactions - private keys A transaction is a transfer of value between Bitcoin wallets that gets included in the block chain. Bitcoin wallets keep a secret piece of data called a private key or seed, which is used to sign transactions, providing a mathematical proof that they have come from the owner of the wallet. The signature also prevents the transaction from being altered by anybody once it has been issued. All transactions are broadcast between users and usually begin to be confirmed by the network in the following 10 minutes, through a process called mining. Processing - mining Mining is a distributed consensus system that is used to confirm waiting transactions by including them in the block chain. It enforces a chronological order in the block chain, protects the neutrality of the network, and allows different computers to agree on the state of the system. To be confirmed, transactions must be packed in a block that fits very strict cryptographic rules that will be verified by the network. These rules prevent previous blocks from being modified because doing so would invalidate all following blocks. Mining also creates the equivalent of a competitive lottery that prevents any individual from easily adding new blocks consecutively in the block chain. This way, no individuals can control what is included in the block chain or replace parts of the block chain to roll back their own spends.

What is a Bitcoin Node? - Step by Step Explanation
What is A Bitcoin Node. Step by Step Explanation https://blockgeeks.com/ The bitcoin network consists of a network of nodes, which are just computers or servers running the Bitcoin software. The code ensures the nodes can find and establish connection with other nodes and hence form a network that is used by the various nodes to transfer information, like transactions, blocks and other data. Through this web of interconnecting nodes, bitcoin can send digital cash securely through the network. The underlying bitcoin code implements the bitcoin protocol. So how does a new node join the bitcoin network? First it must discover at least one peer to connect to and then it can get a list of other peers from that initial peer. There are a few methods a node can use to connect to its first peer. The bitcoin client contains a hardcoded list of well known DNS servers which can return a list of ip addresses of bitcoin nodes. Alternatively, the bitcoin client can be given a static ip address of a peer if one is known. You can pass this ip address as a parameter when starting the bitcoin client software through the command line. It’s important to note that bitcoin’s network topology is not geographically defined, so the physical location of the nodes in relation to one another is irrelevant.This means a node can find and connect to any other node regardless of where it is in the world. Once a node has the ip address of a peer, it then goes through an initial handshake to establish a connection with a remote node. First the local node will send a version message to the peer which contains some basic information about itself. This will always be the first message sent by any peer to another peer. The remote peer receiving the message will examine if the sender’s version is compatible with its own version. If it is, it will acknowledge the version message and establish a connection by sending a “version acknowledgment” message, which consists only of a message header with the command string “verack”. Once a node establishes connections with one or more peers, it will exchange some information with these peers. For example, nodes can exchange ip addr of their connected peers, so each node can maintain a list of peers that it can use to re-establish connection in the future since nodes can leave and join the network at anytime. A Node can also ask its peers what the length of their local copy of the blockchain is. It can then determine if it’s own copy of the blockchain is missing any blocks, and if so, can ask its peers to send the missing blocks. Of course it can also send blocks to other nodes who do not have as much data as itself. Let’s take a closer look at the various nodes in the network. Although all the nodes participate in the network, they have different roles depending on the functionalities they want to support. There are 4 major functions: routing, storage, mining and wallet services. The bitcoin core client implementation in c++ has all four of these functionalities. Routing is the bare minimum functionality a node must support in order to participate in the bitcoin network. It contains the functionality to discover and connect to other peers in the network and it also validates and propagates transactions and blocks through the network. It serves the purpose of keeping the network connection alive and passing information through the network. A node is called a full blockchain node if it stores a local copy of the entire blockchain database. A full node can autonomously and authoritatively verify any transactions without any external references. With a full node you get complete independence and freedom from central authority at the cost of hardware storage space. A mining node serve the special purpose of creating a new block to add to the blockchain. Mining nodes runs special mining software in order to solve a cryptographic puzzle to win mining rewards. They serve the purpose of adding new transactions into the blockchain. To learn more visit us at blockgeeks.com

Blockchain tutorial 27: Bitcoin raw transaction and transaction id
This is part 27 of the Blockchain tutorial. This tutorial explains: - What Bitcoin raw transaction is. - Shows an example of a raw transaction using the very first transaction on the Genesis block. - What the difference is between big endian and little endian. - What a satoshi is. - What a Bitcoin transaction id or hash is and what its purpose is. - How to calculate the transaction id. In this video series different topics will be explained which will help you to understand blockchain. Bitcoin released as open source software in 2009 is a cryptocurrency invented by Satoshi Nakamoto (unidentified person or group of persons). After the introduction of Bitcoin many Bitcoin alternatives were created. These alternate cryptocurrencies are called Altcoins (Litecoin, Dodgecoin etc). Bitcoin's underlying technology is called Blockchain. The Blockchain is a distributed decentralized incorruptible database (ledger) that records blocks of digital information. Each block contains a timestamp and a link to a previous block. Soon people realises that there many other use cases where the Blockchain technology can be applied and not just as a cryptocurrency application. New Blockchain platforms were created based on the Blockchain technology, one of which is called Ethereum. Ethereum focuses on running programming code, called smart contracts, on any decentralized application. Using the new Blockchain platforms, Blockchain technology can be used in supply chain management, healthcare, real estate, identity management, voting, internet of things, etcetera, just to name a few. Today there is a growing interest in Blockchain not only in the financial sector but also in other sectors. Explaining how Blockchain works is not easy and for many the Blockchain technology remains an elusive concept. This video series tries to explain Blockchain to a large audience but from the bottom up. Keywords often used in Blockchain conversation will be explained. Each Blockchain video is short and to the point. It is recommended to watch each video sequentially as I may refer to certain Blockchain topics explained earlier.

Blockchain/Bitcoin for beginners 9: Bitcoin difficulty, target, BITS  - all you need to know
In this video I break the somewhat confusing and mysterious question of how exactly the block difficulty is defined, represented and updated. There is a simplification/misconception that the requirement is just to find a hash with a required number of leading zeros in hex. This is not the case, it's a little more intricate than that.... I show some examples of real blocks - in particular focusing on the genesis block, and how import it is for initializing the difficulty of mining a block. I clarify the relationship between BITS (in the block header) difficulty, and the actual 256 hash target.

How Bitcoin Mining Work's
What is Bitcoin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDvskHePAXU How to Mine Bitcoin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79KEJf4qmps How Bitcoin Mining Works Bitcoin Mining Works by Making a hash of it You can also watch my other video on Home to Mine Bitcoins ( Link is in Description ) This general ledger is a long list of blocks, known as the 'blockchain'. It can be used to explore any transaction made between any bitcoin addresses, at any point on the network. Whenever a new block of transactions is created, it is added to the blockchain, creating an increasingly lengthy list of all the transactions that ever took place on the bitcoin network. A constantly updated copy of the block is given to everyone who participates, so that they know what is going on. When a block of transactions is created, miners put it through a process. They take the information in the block, and apply a mathematical formula to it, turning it into something else. That something else is a far shorter, seemingly random sequence of letters and numbers known as a hash. This hash is stored along with the block, at the end of the blockchain at that point in time. Hashes have some interesting properties. It’s easy to produce a hash from a collection of data like a bitcoin block, but it’s practically impossible to work out what the data was just by looking at the hash. And while it is very easy to produce a hash from a large amount of data, each hash is unique. If you change just one character in a bitcoin block, its hash will change completely. Miners don’t just use the transactions in a block to generate a hash. Some other pieces of data are used too. One of these pieces of data is the hash of the last block stored in the blockchain. Because each block’s hash is produced using the hash of the block before it, it becomes a digital version of a wax seal. It confirms that this block – and every block after it – is legitimate, because if you tampered with it, everyone would know. If you tried to fake a transaction by changing a block that had already been stored in the blockchain, that block’s hash would change. If someone checked the block’s authenticity by running the hashing function on it, they’d find that the hash was different from the one already stored along with that block in the blockchain. The block would be instantly spotted as a fake. Because each block’s hash is used to help produce the hash of the next block in the chain, tampering with a block would also make the subsequent block’s hash wrong too. That would continue all the way down the chain, throwing everything out of whack. Competing for coins Butterfly Labs Bitforce mining rigSo, that’s how miners ‘seal off’ a block. They all compete with each other to do this, using software written specifically to mine blocks. Every time someone successfully creates a hash, they get a reward of 25 bitcoins, the blockchain is updated, and everyone on the network hears about it. That’s the incentive to keep mining, and keep the transactions working. The problem is that it’s very easy to produce a hash from a collection of data. Computers are really good at this. The bitcoin network has to make it more difficult, otherwise everyone would be hashing hundreds of transaction blocks each second, and all of the bitcoins would be mined in minutes. The bitcoin protocol deliberately makes it more difficult, by introducing something called ‘proof of work’. The bitcoin protocol won’t just accept any old hash. It demands that a block’s hash has to look a certain way; it must have a certain number of zeroes at the start. There’s no way of telling what a hash is going to look like before you produce it, and as soon as you include a new piece of data in the mix, the hash will be totally different. Miners aren’t supposed to meddle with the transaction data in a block, but they must change the data they’re using to create a different hash. They do this using another, random piece of data called a ‘nonce’. This is used with the transaction data to create a hash. If the hash doesn’t fit the required format, the nonce is changed, and the whole thing is hashed again. It can take many attempts to find a nonce that works, and all the miners in the network are trying to do it at the same time. That’s how miners earn their bitcoins.

Bitcoin will not store your data forever
People who believe that block size should be kept small often point at this as one of the main reasons: It goes like this: -------- Blocks are kept forever. Infinite storage time will always brings infinite people who want to fill this storage with their data. A fee paid once can be considered negligible, as the storage time is infinite. ( X / ∞ = 0 ) -------- This is a valid argument, but it relies on a false assumption. Blocks are immutable, but there is zero guarantee that they will be stored forever, or be accessible forever. In the bitcoin whitepaper Satoshi wrote about deleting old blocks when they are no longer needed. If people who fill the blockchain with trash data, they will end up storing these filled blocks on their own hard disk, because nobody else would store it for them.

BTCSC.NET - Bitcoin Statcraft : Data Rep in Minecraft
Bitcoin Statcraft (BTCSC) is a dynamic minecraft environment generated using realtime bitcoin market information. Visit http://www.btcsc.net to learn more. All of these bitcoin block stacks are accurate piles based on (at the time the video was made) current information regarding the bitcoin market. Towards the end of the video you'll see me programmatically build the stack of gold, based on the current price of gold in USD and the current bitcoin market cap, also in USD. A script does the calculation and figures out how large that gold pile would be, in real life (m^3), and builds the blocks to match. This is a first version of the thing, with more planned moving forward. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.
