Blockchain- Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the Future of Everything

 

Bitcoin blinked into existence ex nihilo in 2009 and brought with it what may very well prove to be one of the most important creations of computer science in the last decade: the blockchain. SDS developer David Shattuck presents a brief history of the blockchain, an overview of how the technology works, a demonstration of an Ethereum smart contract in action, a survey of interesting projects currently being built on blockchains, and wild speculation about what the future holds.
