Cryptography part 2: Elliptic Curves
In the first part of this series we explored RSA cryptography in order to build up an understanding of how cryptography we will use to bring anonymity to Viacoin transactions.
In this series we will explore various cryptographic technologies that are relevant to cryptocurrency in general, and especially in increasing privacy and anonymity. This series lays the foundations and aims to help more people understand how anonymity can be…
One of the most important properties of a currency is fungibility. For example, gold is fungible because 1g of gold is worth 1g of gold. So the real question here is what leads to this property because if that property were to me missing, fungibility would break down.
