#scrypt.cc: Approx 37 mhs still missing from accounts. Reward 1343.60/mhs/day Update: Missing Wd's being credited -see dashboard. Deposits/Withdrawals likely delayed due to BlockChain issues. Exchange now in MHS! Set Auto-buy to a super low price to keep canceled wd's from being auto re-invested. (from irc)

Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies
There’s a lot of excitement about Bitcoin, but also a lot of confusion about what Bitcoin is and how it works. We’re offering this course focusing on the computer science behind Bitcoin to help cut through the hype and get to the core of what makes Bitcoin unique.

About the Course
To really understand what is special about Bitcoin, we need to understand how it works at a technical level. We’ll address the important questions about Bitcoin, such as:

How does Bitcoin work? What makes Bitcoin different? How secure are your Bitcoins? How anonymous are Bitcoin users? What determines the price of Bitcoins? Can cryptocurrencies be regulated? What might the future hold?

After this course, you’ll know everything you need to be able to separate fact from fiction when reading claims about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. You’ll have the conceptual foundations you need to engineer secure software that interacts with the Bitcoin network. And you’ll be able to integrate ideas from Bitcoin in your own projects.

Course Lecturers:
Arvind Narayanan, Princeton University
Joseph Bonneau, Princeton University
Edward Felten, Princeton University
Andrew Miller, University of Maryland

Recommended Background

An introductory computer science class (such as CS 101) is required.

Basic programming experience as well as some knowledge of data structures and algorithms (linked lists, sorting, searching...) are strongly recommended.
Suggested Readings
There is no required reading for this class. As the lectures progress, we'll provide links to more in-depth material for students who want to dig deeper.

The lectures for this course are also being published as a textbook. Drafts of several chapters are currently available (each corresponds to a lecture):

Chapter 1: Introduction to Cryptography & Cryptocurrencies

Chapter 2: How Bitcoin Achieves Decentralization
Chapter 3: Mechanics of Bitcoin
Chapter 4: How to Store and Use Bitcoins
Chapter 5: Bitcoin Mining
Chapter 7: Community, Politics, and Regulation
Course Format
The class will consist of lecture videos broken up into 5-7 segments, each 10-15 minutes in length. Each segment contains 1 or 2 integrated quiz questions.

There will also be standalone homeworks that are not part of video lectures.

Announcements

Welcome to Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies!
Welcome to the MOOC on Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies where we cut through the hype and get to the core of what makes Bitcoin unique. We're excited to offer this course focusing on the science behind Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

We'll release new videos Friday of each week. This week, your main tasks are to watch lectures 1 and 2 and to complete the embedded quizzes. Those of you who prefer to download the lectures can complete the standalone quizzes instead (the questions are the same).

We also encourage you to read the book chapters that closely follow the lectures. For technically complex explanations, you may find it helpful to use the text and go at your own pace. The chapters also have exercises and links for further reading at the end.

Learning about Bitcoin is more fun if you play with the software yourself and explore websites that display the block chain. At bitcoin.org you'll find all the links and info you need for this.

Cheers
Arvind Narayanan
