Lynn, thank you for this course. I am my wits end trying to understand the crypto thing and the 101 course was very helpful. I am going to take your next course in the series to help solidify what I have learned. I am still confused about who comes up with the math equations for the miners to solve. Any thoughts on that please share. Larry
