On todays episode, Andreas looks at the inner structure of bitcoin and how high-level financial and trust applications are composed from smaller elements. Using analogies from Lego blocks to a chef creating new recipes, this talk highlights the connection between creativity and the flexibility offered by fine-grained components.
The talk itself is about 20 minutes followed by a little less than an hour of Q&A. This was presented and recorded live with the Berlin Blockchain Meetup group earlier this year.
If you're interested in attending a LTB meetup during or outside the conference send an email to [email protected]Read More

When doing new things, it is not uncommon to find completely unanticipated results. The recent events impacting TheDAO have opened my eyes to a reality that is very contrary to the one I thought I knew. Why are we interested in smart contracts and what really is their value?
