Description Bitcoin is among the world’s most widely deployed decentralized cryptographic systems. We will give a short introduction into why financial privacy and Bitcoin is a critical tool for activists and briefly discuss the mechanisms behind Bitcoin.

  • How to get statistics from the network and how to interpret them.
  • How to use the RPC interface to create (multisig-)transactions.
  • How to set limits on resource usage.
  • How to make use of Tor.
  • How to securely store coins.
