How many transactions can fit in a block, with or without SegWit? What other types of data can you put in a block? What is metadata? What is OP_RETURN? What is OpenTimestamps and what are the use cases?
These questions are from MOOC 9.6 and the June monthly Patreon sessions, which took place on March 23rd and June 24th 2018 respectively. Andreas is a teaching fellow with the University of Nicosia. The first course in their Master of Science in Digital Currency degree, DFIN-511: Introduction to Digital Currencies, is offered for free as an open enrollment MOOC course to anyone interested in learning about the fundamental principles.
