bitcoin, barter, Cryptographic Hash Function

This video is part of a larger online course, "From Barter to Bitcoin: Society, Technology and the Future of Money" run by Prof. Bill Maurer and Prof. Donald J. Patterson In addition to the video on YouTube there is a variety of other content available to students enrolled in the class.

"In 2008, a person calling himself or herself or themselves Satoshi Nakamoto released a paper suggesting a system for an anonymous, peer-to-peer alternative money. Bitcoin was born. Although not the first digital currency ever proposed, nor the first challenger to fiat money, bitcoin is the first to have captured the broad imagination of speculators, coders, regulators, criminals and the mass media. This course puts Bitcoin in context: how do we understand money as a social, political and technological phenomenon? From discussions of ancient transactions to the rise of state-issued currencies,...

Supplement to the cryptocurrency video: How hard is it to find a 256-bit hash just by guessing and checking? What kind of computer would that take?

Cryptocurrency video: https://youtu.be/bBC-nXj3Ng4

Thread for Q&A questions: http://3b1b.co/questions

Several people have commented about how 2^256 would be the maximum number of attempts, not the average. This depends on the thing being attempted. If it's guessing a private key, you are correct, but for something like guessing which input to a hash function gives a desired output (as in bitcoin mining, for example), which is the kind of thing I had in mind here, 2^256 would indeed be the average number of attempts needed, at least for a true cryptographic hash function. Think of rolling a die until you get a 6, how many rolls do you meed to make, on average?

Learn what a hash function does and how it is used in bitcoin and blockchains in general. Leave questions in the comments and we'll do our best to answer!

One way hash functions are used in the bitcoin network is to help secure transactions. They do this by creating a very difficult mathematical problem that miners must try and solve which in turn creates proof-of-work (POW) which leads to consensus across the network.

Have you heard of bitcoins, but aren’t sure exactly what they are? Or maybe you’ve done your research and thought that they seem too good to be true. Either way, we are going to examine some of the dark truths behind this form of cryptocurrency. Making an investment in a digital format may seem like a great way to avoid banks, but it can also end up to you losing everything simply by forgetting your password or experiencing a technological failure. Bitcoins may be a lot riskier than you think, and there are a lot of unscrupulous people who take advantage of them for their own gain. Bitcoin mining can be a great way to earn some extra cash, but the bigger your operation, the more opportunities for something to go terribly...

Cryptography (Software Genre), Bitcoin (Currency)

Bitcoins are mined using a cryptographic algorithm called SHA-256. This algorithm is simple enough to be done with pencil and paper, as I show in this video. Not surprisingly, this is a thoroughly impractical way to mine. One round of the algorithm takes 16 minutes, 45 seconds which works out to a hash rate of 0.67 hashes per day.

Cryptocurrencies use a ton of electricity because of mining. In recent years people started working on a different technique called Proof-of-Stake. Not only does it use less energy, it can also be more secure.
