In this video, you’ll get an introduction to the basics of blockchain. We cover topics like cryptographic hash functions and ledgers, digital signatures and unique transaction IDs.
We also discuss consensus mechanisms such as Proof of Work and Proof of Stake, and outline basic concepts such as cryptocurrencies, decentralized finance (DeFi), Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs), and Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs).
During this session, these web3 concepts are explored through the lens of Tezos.
📆 Our educational series will continue with an Intro to Tezos on February 3rd.
