Bitcoin Transaction Malleability

I had the opportunity of participating in Aviv Zohar’s Advanced Bitcoin Seminar at the Hebrew University.

My task was to review Christian Decker’s article Bitcoin Transaction Malleability and MtGox [1].

It was a great read, I learned a lot! :)

My talk covered low level bitcoin protocol details, some bitcoin security, transaction malleability and the MtGox incident.

Here are the slides:
