In this course, you will learn more about the operation of Proof of Work (PoW). This consensus mechanism is used by several blockchains and is fundamentally the same across all of them. We will focus on the most well-known implementation, the one used by the Bitcoin protocol. Environmental aspects will be covered in another course. This course is quite advanced as it requires some knowledge of cryptography. But don’t worry, I have simplified it as much as possible, and many diagrams will help you understand.
