The Great Bitcoin Node Live Action Role-Play

About this Event
What is a bitcoin node? What does it do? How do transactions flow through the network and get mined?
In this 2-hour workshop, we'll live-action role play the bitcoin network. We'll see how transactions get made, how they get to miners, what work a bitcoin node does and how it helps secure the network. You'll get a front-line view of how miners create blocks and transactions get spent, how difficulty readjustments impact block production, and what re-orgs and network splits look like.
No prior knowledge of bitcoin or running a node is required, but highly recommended to get the most out of this workshop.
Location will be sent to attendees a few days before the event!
