The Cryptographic and Game-Theoretical Fundamentals behind Bitcoin.

Held in MC 2034, on 2012-10-18, at 4:00 PM.


by Vitalik Buterin. Interested in learning more about Bitcoin, the independent digital cryptographic cash? Then this is the talk for you!

In his talk, Vitalik will cover the cryptographic and game-theory principles behind the currency, including how the issues of double-spending, the "51% attack," and "mining" are addressed, the game-theory incentives to use Bitcoins honestly, and other issues being faced today in practice, such as implementation, attacks, and future scalability.

Refreshments will be provided.
