I strongly endorse and recommend this course. Ignore the coding assignments :) Click here and take the course! https://www.coursera.org/learn/cryptocurrency/supplement/M3c6U/course-information ------------- ABout the Course from Coursera ------------------------- Welcome to Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies! https://www.coursera.org/learn/cryptocurrency/supplement/M3c6U/course-information You’re joining over 150,000 other learners currently enrolled in the course. I'm excited to have you in the class and look forward to exploring Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and blockchains with you. This course includes three programming assignments, in addition to lectures and quizzes. Doing these assignments will enhance your understanding of the material, but you can get a lot out of the course even if you don’t have a programming background. The course site treats assignments as mandatory, but you should consider them as optional. Either way, the course doesn’t offer a certificate for passing, per Princeton University policy. We encourage you to use the textbook, Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies, as a complement to this course. The textbook chapters closely follow the lectures but feature additional detail and/or alternative explanations of many tricky concepts. A free draft is available also, but the published version is more polished, professionally edited, and peer-reviewed. I recommend taking a few minutes to explore the course site and reviewing the material we’ll cover each week. Click Discussions to see forums where you can discuss the course material with fellow students taking the class. Feel free to introduce yourself to everyone in the Meet and Greet forum.

Lecture 3.1 – Bitcoin Transactions [Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies]
 
11:27
Welcome to the third lecture in our series on Bitcoin. This lecture is going to be all about the mechanics of Bitcoin at a fairly low level. So whereas in the first two lectures, we've talk in a relatively high level, in this lecture, we're going to be trying to give it to you as real as possible. So we'll look at real data structures, real scripts. Try to learn the details and language of Bitcoin in a precise way to set up everything that we wanna talk about for the remainder of the course. So in some ways, this will be the most challenging lecture because a lot of details are going to be flying at you.

Lecture 1.5 – A Simple Cryptocurrency [Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies]
 
14:05
In segment 1.5, we're going to move from talking about Cryptography and we're going to move on to Cryptocurrencies. Now, I know that many of you showed up here for the Cryptocurrency stuff. And, trust me, there will be a lot more Cryptocurrency material in future lecture. Unfortunately we needed to eat some of our cryptographic vegetables in order to have the background to talk about Cryptocurrencies. And now you'll see when I start talking about Cryptocurrencies how these pieces fit together and why the cryptographic operations like hash functions and digital signatures are actually useful. All right, so in this section I want to talk about some simplified Cryptocurrencies that give us ideas about how systems like BitCoin work. Of course, it's going to require about ten more lectures in order to really spell out all of the implications of how BitCoin works and what that means. But let me talk about some very simple Cryptocurrencies to get the discussion started.

So, in the previous section, we got a basic look at BitCoin's consensus algorithm and a good intuition for why we believe that it's secure. But recall that at the beginning of the lecture I told you that BitCoin's decentralization is partly a technical mechanism and partly clever incentive engineering. So far, we've mostly looked at the technical mechanism. Now let's talk about the incentive engineering that happens in BitCoin.

Lecture 4.4 – Online Wallets and Exchanges [Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies]
 
19:28
In segment 4.4, we'll move on to talk about Online Wallets and Exchanges. Thus far, we've talked about ways in which you could store and manage your bitcoins yourself. Now we'll talk about ways in which you can use other people's services to help you do that. So the first thing you could do is to use an online wallet. An online wallet is kind of like a local wallet that you might manage yourself, except that the information is stored in the cloud and so you have some kind of say web based interface like this. This is from one called Block Chain, but there are plenty of other online wallet services.

Lecture 2.1 – Centralization vs. Decentralization [Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies]
 
04:48
Hello, and welcome to the second lecture, which is going to be all about decentralization in Bitcoin. Now, in the first lecture you saw a lot of the crypto basics that underlie Bitcoin and we ended with a simple currency that we called Scrooge coin. That seems to achieve a lot of what we want in a ledger based crypto currency, except for one big glaring problem, which is that it relies upon the centralized authority called Scrooge. And we end it with the question of, how do we de-scroogify this currency? How do we go to a decentralized version of this? That's what we're gonna see today. What I find cool about this is that the way in which Bitcoin achieves decentralization is not purely technical but it's a combination of technical and clever incentive engineering. And, at the end of this lecture, you should have a really good appreciation for how this happens asnd a lot of the magic or mystery of Bitcoin should become clear to you and how it works and why it's secure, and what makes it tick.

Click http://cx.femiolaleye.com to get the CryptoCurrency Codex by the CryptoCurrency Institute. Princeton Bitcoin Course-Stanford Bitcoin Course-Princeton Bitcoin Book PDF-Blockchain Coursera Cryptocurrency Codex is the only system recommended by the Cryptocurrency Institute that gives members a simple, step-by-step solution for every trader or investor to exploit market inefficiencies for an almost guaranteed profit. It is a comprehensive all inclusive mentorship package that will hold you by the hand to quickly guide you to making money without the need for hours of research and years of experience. This Course Promises To Introduce The Low Cost & Low Risk Solution To CryptoCurrency Profits. With this training system, members will learn the one simple underground method derived from sophisticated patterns created by Russian traders to profit immensely from any Cryptocurrency, regardless of what’s going on in the market. Cryptocurrency Codex is a comprehensive all-inclusive mentoring package that keeps members on the ground to help them quickly and systematically earn money. Their head trader is Pat Kendrick. He is a retired economist, senior researcher and head of the Crypto Mining & Trading Division here at the Cryptocurrency Institute. If you’re sick of getting “normal” market returns of 10% or less a year, then you’ll want to learn what he has been doing to make money consistently from trading. Here is what Pat describes on his site: “I’ve worked for years in this industry, both from the academic side, as well as theoretical research and analysis, as well as personally monitoring Cryptocurrencies in the real world, ICOs, arbitrage and Cryptocurrency mining. I understand more than just about anyone in the country – like the super-rich, the top 1% of Elite EXPLOIT loopholes in market uncertainties to get merciless amounts of market returns of up to 10,000% ROI with almost no risk. Best of all, we have modified this “loophole” so that it works for everyday life without much money and without experience. In fact, here are the life-changing results of our students who are first-time investors.” People like the 66-year-old Joe D, a retired salesman from Richmond, Virgina. Joe initially invested $7,000 with this method said; “I’m close to $250,000 now.” David Smithson, is a 61-year-old business owner from Austin, Texas. He says his portfolio has “jumped $500,000 in less than three months”. “I feel like I now have a chance to recover the lost profits I missed in the technology boom of the 1990s,” he said. Matthew G. had never invested 12 weeks ago said; “I took my money off the stock market because it did not go that well,” he said. “My $35,000 has grown to $600,000 in that very short time.” Samantha H, a single mother and freshman, never invested before. “My $7,000 savings rose to nearly $90,000 in just four months,” she said. Cryptocurrency Codex is one of the few courses about Cryptocurrency online that works and is getting results right now. #copied Princeton Bitcoin Course-Stanford Bitcoin Course-Princeton Bitcoin Book PDF-Blockchain Coursera - https://youtu.be/9zioqA95q9k Cryptocurrency Codex Reviews Cryptocurrency Institute Reviews Cryptocurrency Code Cryptocurrency Codex Cryptocurrency Institute Cryptocurrency Codex Review Princeton Bitcoin Course-Stanford Bitcoin Course-Princeton Bitcoin Book PDF-Blockchain Coursera Read True-Life Inspiring Stories http://samuelola.com/ Follow On; Twitter - https://twitter.com/soolaleye FaceBook - https://www.facebook.com/soolaleye/ GooglePlus - https://plus.google.com/b/114818777278925699032/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/soolaleye/

Lecture 1.3 – Digital Signatures [Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies]
 
09:47
In segment 1.3, we're going to talk about digital signatures. This is the second cryptographic primitive along with hash functions that we need as building blocks for the cryptocurrency discussion later on. So a digital signature is supposed to be just like a signature on paper only in digital form. And what that means is this, what we want from signatures is two things. First, that just like an ideal paper signature, only you can make your signature, but anyone who sees your signature can verify that it's valid. And then the second thing you want is that the signature is tied to a particular document. So that somebody can't take your signature and snip it off one document and glue it onto the bottom of another one because the signature is not just a signature. It signifies your agreement or endorsement of a particular document. Okay, so the question is how can we build this in a digital form using cryptography?

So in the last section we ended by showing how large, professional mining data centers have taken over the business of Bitcoin mining. And we showed the parallel to traditional mining with those open pit mines on the bottom, which you may know have been a huge source of concern for environmentalists over the years, asking how much damage are these pit miner doing to the environment?

The miners are interested in finding a nonce which will create a hash with certain characteristics. Lastly, they have to find a random value that they included in the header, which makes the computed hash over that header a value below a particular target. In other words, they do not have to agree to change the protocol. Though there are a few gold diggers attempting to fill their pockets and certain projects that aren`t viable and shouldn`t be encouraged in any way. For users running a complete node, it is a fairly painless procedure to upgrade the software to the newest version. The process of locating a new block to extend the blockchain is known as mining. Proof-of-Work systems utilize cryptographic hashing algorithms to create the action of mining a block a complicated computation. Our software is totally incompatible with altcoins. Changes and modifications to how that it works need to be approved by consensus and every CPU gets a vote. To start with, it`s essential to realize that hardware wallet users control entirely their private keys.

If you have some concerns about the worth of Bitcoin after all forks, you need to be ready for a drop. The distinction is that not all of these suffer the chain split. The primary problem is Bitcoin imposes a hard limit on the magnitude of a block, the location where transaction information becomes stored. The end result is many straightforward wallets, called SPV wallets and very commonly found on your phone, will be quite confused about which chain is Bitcoin. In Bitcoin, the most important reason is known as the network effect.
