If you watch enough episodes of "Bitcoin Class with Satoshi" with Dr. Craig Wright and sCrypt's Xiaohui Liu, it's possible to forget Bitcoin was ever supposed to be just a new kind of money—even though it still does that job extremely well.
This week's episode of Bitcoin Class with Satoshi also involves a Bitcoin concept that has been around since the white paper, but its capabilities are rarely understood.
The episode's title is "DFAs and Financial Contracts." DFA are "deterministic finite automata," and Dr. Craig Wright says "I've put out some papers on this in the past... also got some patents on it.”
Knowing what information to process on-chain and what to process off-chain is a key theme of the Bitcoin Class series, featuring sCrypt founder Xiaohui Liu and Dr. Craig Wright.
Episode 2 of Bitcoin Class with Satoshi touches on Semantic Web applications, provably fair gaming, verifiable proofs and zero-knowledge proofs.
Xiaohui Liu's "Bitcoin Class" series of video tutorials with Bitcoin creator Dr. Craig Wright offers a fresh way of looking at things, some inspiration on the real power of Bitcoin Script and its capabilities.
