In the last couple of years cryptocurrencies arose as an alternative payment method. These currencies promise anonymity and independence from state-regulated markets. For this, cryptocurrencies use cryptographic primitives to ensure decentralization and security of the transactions.
This proseminar aims at Bachelor students who want to get into the field of cryptography and cryptocurrencies. Starting from the theoretical basics, in the course of the semester we will examine the most popular examples and applications.
The module exam consists of a 30 minute presentation followed by a discussion round. For the active participation a five page elaboration of the presentation (in LaTeX/LyX) and a regular involvement in the discussion are needed.
Lectures "Algorithms, data structures, and data abstraction" and "Logic and Discrete Mathematics".
An advantage would be knowledge in the area of computer security.
