or How Bitcoin ACTUALLY Works
Very useful read. Thanks for penning this down. I had one doubt :
"Supposing the message came accompanied by a digital signature, our general has all of the tools he needs to verify the signature for himself without trusting anybody else. The contents of the letter would be the message, the signature would be some alphanumerals that would be sent along with the letter, and the public key required for verifying the signature would be the public key of the purported sender of the letter."
Would a leak of someone's private key make it possible to do fraudulent transactions? Since the private key + the message + the public key is all that's needed to verify a transaction
Succinct and well hashed article. Nice one.
Lovely written BRO!!!! God Bless!!!
Thank you so much for writing out this masterpiece on Bitcoin101.
The most crystal clear foundational primer on crypto I have found. Would highly recommend this to everyone in my network. Thank you so much for this Aaryaman.
This was just what I needed, thanks a ton!
Great article 👏. Reads like a nice story from beginning to end.
This was a great article on Bitcoin, and I loved the method you explained every single bit about it. Recently I came across something known as Lightning Network that helps in scaling the transactions on Bitcoin with the help of a channel system. It was a bit challenging to understand what exactly it is, how it works, and whether it even makes sense for the future of Bitcoin. Can you share any details or information about Lightning Network and its use cases for Bitcoin, if you know any?
Great article. Thank you so much Aaryaman.
Thank you Aaryaman! The conceptual clarity aside, this is an extraordinary piece of writing!
