Some of the Math Behind Bitcoin Private Keys

in #cryptocurrency6 years ago (edited)

How do you slow down hackers and provide equal access to everyone on earth? Not easy. But the solution in Bitcoin is devilishly simple, employing outrageously big numbers. Bitcoin’s private keys are made of numbers (called quindecillions) that are so large, they literally choke the best Bitcoin mining computers.

In fact even if all the world’s Bitcoin computers were able to work together, these numbers would still be too large. This is not the way to buy bitcoin. By using an analogy to drawers and pirates by diving into this math, revealing not only how simple the idea is, but how well it works.

What do you think about these private keys and the math behind them?
