Think Deeply of Simple Things
This is the first article in a series on thermodynamics and blockchain. It lays out some basic principles of thermodynamics and record keeping in relation to proof of work Thermodynamics of Blockchain and the thermodynamics of Life
In the second article in the series we look at proof of stake, which isn't so obviousbly a thermodynamic process and try to understand how POS systems can reach finality faster than POW systems Thermodynamics & Blockchain, part 2. Proof of Stake
In the third article in the series we look at how to deduce a concrete application from these rather abstract ideas Time, Space, Blockchains and practical applications.
