Tagline

Have you wanted to take part in the crypto currency craze but everything is written in C++ or Go?

Background

Although it might seem like a daunting task, in this talk we will go through the basics of what is needed in a crypto coin, and we will make our own UIKonfCoin in swift, not because you really want to make your own coin? Who knows maybe you do, but as an exercise in learning what is needed to do so.

If you are a swift aficionado who just wants to understand more about crypto currencies on a technical level then this talk is for you! We will talk about blocks, hashes, blockchains, merkle trees, patricia trees, oh my..

Goals

After this talk you will be able to write your own coin in swift, or interact with any existing coin in swift.
