Last night, September 14, Bob Van Valzah dropped in for a long session on Digital Currencies which turned into a three-part series on Blockchains. One or more series will follow covering all the issues surrounding digital currencies. To the left is a shot of Bob’s Bitcoin Mining Rig that we discussed tonight, and also a video of that Mining Rig in production.

In the first part of our six-part series on Digital Currencies we’ll address the following questions around Blockchains:

  • How did you get into bitcoin mining?
  • What is a Blockchain?
  • How is a Blockchain structured?
  • Where are Blockchains stored?
  • What is the role of a node?
  • Are all nodes miners?
  • Is a miner a person or a computer?
  • What is a mining rig?

In part two we’ll cover mining itself. This has already been recorded and it should be released a few days after part 1.
