Improving Bitcoin Nodes UI And UX – Bitcoin Magazine


This is an opinion editorial by Ram, a twenty year old student, soldier and storyteller.

Imagine this:

Your baby girl is fiddling with her laptop, and she’s yelling, “Wow!” and “Oh!” You wonder what’s going on. Is it a cartoon? Is it anime? Why’s she so excited?

As I, a twenty year old, write this in Singapore, about 15,000 active Bitcoin nodes are estimated to be running all over the world. These nodes store the Bitcoin database in part/in its entirety.

With 15,000 computers storing the same database all over the world, repeatedly transmitting new transactions and new blocks to one another, it’s practically impossible for any one player to pop by and change the record of what happened.
