This blog post is to encapsulate what I tried to do with the Billcoin project => http://bstavroulakis.com/demos/billcoin/

The first time I read about Bitcoin I was fascinated. It was such an elegant and smart idea I really had to go in-depth. However, I quickly realized that there aren’t a lot of resources out there to give someone a quick but complete image of all of the nuts and bolts of Bitcoin. I would either find extremely sophisticated stuff or people talking about how to make money with Bitcoin or about its social-economical impact.

Isn’t there a dead-simple but very deep and precise demo to show how crypto-currencies work? Not that I know of. That is why I created Billcoin which is a good place for you to begin your journey on learning about crypto-currencies.

So, if you are interested in how Bitcoin really works dive in!
