"Pettycoin 1.0" talk is going to be dense
. Mainly because it's about "What I should have done" which involves explaining enough of bitcoin internals to explain the sidechains paper, then going further and explain Gregory Maxwell's various proposals to scale bitcoin.
There are two big pluses to this: firstly, I haven't seen these concepts presented in easy-to-digest form before. Secondly, attending this talk may give insight into improvements which some very bright people have proposed for bitcoin, which I thus expect to show up in sidechains in the medium term. #bitcoin #sidechain #lca2015 #pettycoin
