Feeling proud of the article about ‘Bitcoins & Blockchains’ being published in the latest edition of the Orbit magazine. Wrote it in collaboration with Aarohan Tiwari. We read and learned about the bitcoin technology from various sources online and came up with this write-up in about an hour or so.
For those of you who are unknown to Bitcoins, it is an online currency or a cryptocurrency invented by Satoshi Nakamoto. They are beneficial for online money transactions as they are not under the control of any organization i.e. it is decentralized. There is no physical existence of this currency. All the transactions that occur are transparent and anonymous which means that people can see how many bitcoins you transferred but not your identity.
If you want to know more, let me know for a dedicated blog post on this technology!
