Blockchain/Bitcoin for beginners 2: Hashing, blockchain networks, blockchain browser



Episode two of my series on Blockchain/Bitcoin. I’m joined by my girlfriend Nadisha who is my classroom pupil…

I build on the physical analogy in the first episode and explain the basic concepts behind a real blockchain network.

Then go on to talk about hashing, and then give a live demo of the real Bitcoin blockchain to illustrate what a real blockchain looks like
