Block Chains

A few weeks ago, Pavel Nabutovsky and I attended a talk on block chains. The Bitcoin currency is an infamous implementation of this technology; however, the underlying approach will likely be important for a range of financial and commercial applications. A block chain is a data structure comprised of a ...

A few weeks ago, Pavel Nabutovsky and I attended a talk on block chains. The Bitcoin currency is an infamous implementation of this technology; however, the underlying approach will likely be important for a range of financial and commercial applications. A block chain is a data structure comprised of a series of data that have been validated by a network of trusted peers. In other words, a bock chain is a distributed ledger of time ...
