Bitcoin - The Internet of Money
/btc was created to foster and support free and open Bitcoin discussion about cryptocurrency, Bitcoin news, and exclusive AMA (Ask Me Anything) interviews from top Bitcoin and cryptocurrency leaders. Bitcoin is the currency of the Internet. A distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Unlike traditional currencies such as dollars, bitcoins are issued and managed without the need for any central authority whatsoever. Learn more about Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, cryptocurrency, and more.

Discussion about Primecoin and its infra. Primecoin is a very innovative cryptocurrency, being the 1st non Hash-Cash PoW crypto, naturally scarce (not artificially), with very fast confirmations (1min), elastic readjusting reward & a useful mining (byproducts are primes). Primecoin is sustainable (miners are guaranteed to have revenues), and decentralized (ASIC/FPGA are not particularly advantaged). Sidechain for decentralized data applications (e.g. Storj) currently in development.
Resquet to Adam Black to explain his twiter profile description: "inventor of hashcash (bitcoin is hashcash extended with inflation control)"
Hi, Adam, I would like to ask you to explain your twiter description: "cryptographer, privacy enhancing tech, ecash, inventor of hashcash (bitcoin is hashcash extended with inflation control)" This comment is misleading and suggest you invested bitcoin and hashcash would be some kind of currency. Hashcash is a anti-SPAM system, not a currency. It doesn't even have an unit of account of account, how could adding inflation control to it make any sense? Please can you clarify on your reasoning on that, has it seem to mislead many peoples? Thanks adam3us
The sender prepares a header and appends a counter value initialized to a random number. It then computes the 160-bit SHA-1 hash of the header. If the first 20 bits (i.e. the 5 most significant hex digits) of the hash are all zeros, then this is an acceptable header.
They aren't even using the same hashing algorithm. Similar method, but not identical. More from the Wikipedia page:
While hashcash uses the SHA-1 hash and requires the first 20 of 160 hash bits to be zero, bitcoin's proof of work uses two successive SHA-256 hashes and originally required at least the first 32 of 256 hash bits to be zero.
The fact Back claims on his Twitter bio that his hashcash is used in Bitcoin Proof-of-Work is fraudulent As of the time of this post, Back's Twitter profile reads as:
"Shortly before publishing the Bitcoin white paper, Hashcash inventor Dr. Adam Back directed Satoshi Nakamoto to Dai’s work, making Dai one of few people Bitcoin’s inventor personally reached out to before publishing his white paper."
"'Bitcoin is Hashcash extended with inflation control.' ...[is] sort of like saying, 'a Tesla is just a battery on wheels.'" -- Blockstream's Adam Back #R3KT by Princeton researchers in new Bitcoin book
The REAL problem with bitcoin today is that we went from Satoshi, who believed the WORLD! could be changed to someone who claims to have proven that impossible (Greg Maxwell) and another who just invented HashCash (Adam "What the feck is hashcash?" Back)
The latter of which is also willing to trade principles for situations that benefit them short term. (Long term/Clear as day Censorship) Who waste investor cash on renting satellites that claimed to bring bitcoin to the unbanked... and only meant it literally. Shame on blockstream, shame on core, shame on bitcoin, shame on bitcoin.org, shame on bitcointalk.org
Hashcash. A core building block of the Bitcoin protocol is the Hashcash concept. Bitcoin uses Hashcash to provide security from malicious alterations of the Blockchain, by imposing a cost for alteration that a miner must hope to recoup through rewards given for cooperation. To start BTCManager’s ‘History of Bitcoin’ series, we will look at the proof-of-work algorithm Hashcash.This algorithm was used as the basis upon which a number of cryptocurrencies, most notably bitcoin, create their mining protocols.. The Origin of Hashcash. In 1992, researchers Cynthia Dwork and Moni Naor presented their paper titled: “Pricing via Processing or Combatting Junk Mail ... HashCash has just recently launched a first-of-its-kind white label payment platform that is based on Bitcoin currency. The new ecommerce payment option will help merchants receive Bitcoin as payment. The blockchain technology company disclosed this on Thursday at an event that introduced a white label payment key that will integrate Bitcoin as the main cryptocurrency for payments. Hashcash. Bitcoin uses the hashcash Proof_of_work function as the mining core. All bitcoin miners whether CPU, GPU, FPGA or ASICs are expending their effort creating hashcash proofs-of-work which act as a vote in the blockchain evolution and validate the blockchain transaction log. Decentralization: hashcash-Scrypt vs hashcash-SHA256; Bitcoin uses the hashcash Proof of Work function as the Bitcoin mining core. All bitcoin miners whether CPU, GPU, FPGA or ASICs are expending their effort creating hashcash proofs-of-work which act as a vote in the blockchain evolution and validate the blockchain transaction log.
A brief and simple introduction to the hash function and how blockchain solutions use it for proof of work (mining) and data integrity (Merkle Trees). Hashcash is a proof-of-work system used to limit email spam and denial-of-service attacks, and more recently has become known for its use in bitcoin as part of the mining algorithm.
