Monday's HOT MIC

I just had another piece published about Bitcoin and its enabling technology Blockchain.

[C]onstructing a new, forged, block that has the same hash as a legitimate block you want to replace is fantastically hard. What’s more, the hash itself depends on the contents of the block, which means that the contents can’t feasibly be changed or corrupted. In Bitcoin, those contents verify the coin transactions.

The combination of distributing the ledger, and cryptographically verifying the ledger is uncorrupted, means it provides a new kind of ledger which is hard to destroy and very trustworthy.

Go read it and make me look good at the day job.
