Came over this interesting tutorial on how to build a very simple but working blockchain from scratch using C++. Recommended reading for all of you interested in blockchains and decentralization.
Looking good, just need some P2P sync and verification of it's data integrity.
Makes it a bit easier to understand cryptocurrency 😆
Cryptocurrency is a bit more complex tho 😉, this is just the blockchain which in itself isn't very hard to implement. The tricky part is to keep it in sync across a distributed network of nodes and make sure nobody tries to cheat.
Wish they had blockchain voting during the election, what's going on right now is a damn dumpster fire.
Might as well link to the original, the Bitcoin blockchain: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin
A bit more complicated, I admit.
