Git and Bitcoin: the Similarities
Fun fact: I’m writing articles on initialcommit.com now! I’ve worked with Jacob in the past to bring you the evolution of version control systems (go look that up there, hugo doesn’t like links in the body of link posts, hah), but now I’ve actually got articles under my name there. If you like Git things, check it out.
Anyways, to the point. Did you know that Git and Bitcoin are actually based on some very similar concepts and at the very low level are nearly identical in implementation? In the two-post series over there, I pick apart just how closely related the two are.
