Many of you have heard about the bitcoin process, but really don’t understand how it works. You really don’t need to know the technology of a bitcoin before you can start generating your own address. You’ll need to install a bit wallet on your mobile phone or computer, and that will generate your address. You can give this to your close friends and vice versa. These addresses are only used once however.
So, how does this work anyway? The purpose of the bitcoin is to use it to buy services and products and to keep track of your ongoing balances. You can sign transactions which become personal which use a private key to designate the owner which cannot be altered. The broadcast of the transactions are immediate with users, however it takes 10 minutes to be broadcast on the network-this is called mining.
Once they are included in the block chain, in chronological order, the rules dictate the chain reaction. A distributed consensus system confirms all the transactions once the initial trade is started. This system blocks any new blocks from changing in the system so there is no way anyone can replace parts of the block with a new role of bills. The cryptographic rules are all verified by the network to prevent blocks from becoming distorted.
The bitcoin system is simply the transaction between two people. This would eliminate the need to have a financial institution handle the transaction. The network actually time stamps the transaction so it cannot be changed thereby showing proof of work. In the past, many Financial Systems are tied up trying to service third parties in electronic payments. Non reversible transactions are almost impossible, and depleting the time that it takes for financial institutions to process the payments, makes sure that everything is on a trustworthy basis.
The whole process is set up to transact willing parties that find themselves without the need of a third party. This system would protect Sellers from fraud, however new electronic stages need to be set up to protect the consumer, or the buyers of products. By using a time stamp system, there is computational proof of the order of the transactions, and makes the system more secure because it uses a timeframe in honest nodes which control the central processing unit power to eliminate a group of the attacker NODES.
