Episode details

Accounts are a way of representing users on the blockchain. Just like we have accounts in banks, generally represented by account numbers or IBANs, we have accounts in blockchains too. In a blockchain, accounts are generally a representation of a user’s cryptographic public key.

In this episode, we cover accounts and cryptographic keys - public key cryptography and its application in blockchains.
