How a Bitcoin Transaction Works

How a Bitcoin Transaction Works | Linked Data BI | Scoop.it
Gregg Cooke's insight:

This is a great summary of how Bitcoin works.  Bitcoin's strength is in its protection of the transaction log -- it requires herculean effort to modify the details of a transaction once committed.  This means that Bitcoin transactions are virrually tamper-proof. 

 

Tampering, if it happens, occurs outside of the transaction -- either in the wallet (by reusing addresses for transactions or outright theft from the wallet) or in the exchange of Bitcoin to real-world currency.  In other words, the storage of Bitcoins, and the exchange rate of Bitcoins, can be tampered with...but Bitcoin transactions themselves cannot practically be tampered with.

 

Tampering on the storage side will soon go the same way as the transaction, as hardware wallets become the norm.  Bitcoins in a hardware wallet will become safer than real money, credit cards, checks, or any other form of currency.

 

That leaves the currency exchange rate as the last frontier for tampering.

Gregg Cooke's comment, May 19, 2013 5:00 PM
Something to consider: "mining bitcoins" is a misnomer -- it's not at all about digging in some virtual quarry for shiny new bitcoins, but really "mining for transaction validity", and then bitcoins get awarded as payment for doing that work. The goal of the mining is to validate the transaction -- you can see that in the diagram above.
