One of the most complicated areas of the physics world, fluid dynamics may not be the first thing that comes to my mind when we think of crypto money.
According to a Stanford University physicist who is discovering the groundbreaking connections between these two worlds, Bitcoin works very much like the dynamics of liquids.
A study published on April 23 struck the world of physics. William Gilpin, a physicist at Stanford University, presented a brilliant thesis that combined Bitcoin’s working principle with fluid dynamics, even though he was still a doctoral student. According to him, understanding the world of liquids will play a crucial role in the future of cyber security measures and the financial technology world. Now let’s take a closer look at this confusing discovery.
The similarity between the mathematical functions that govern crypto-money and the laws of physics in the natural world can put a more developed cyber world under our feet in the future. This interesting point of view is related to Block Chain, which is the basic technology of crypto money.
“Exploring the similarities of crypto money and the underlying technologies of nature in physics can open the door to new discoveries,” says Willam Gilpin.
In order to better understand these discourses, we need basic knowledge about the working principles of Bitcoin and all other crypto money. Crypto money is a collection of digital information that is produced to work completely anonymously. These heaps of information can not be controlled by any center. At the same time, Block Chain technology, found on its premises, offers things beyond crypto currencies. This technology, based on a series of mathematical operations, provides safe information exchange. In other words, both identities are protected and firewalls are built in comparison with existing information systems. It’s basically mathematics.
Gilpin, a physicist, brings together the laws of physics that work when we mix a complex world of crypto money with a fluid. As an example, consider a cup of plain coffee and a spoon in your hand. As you like your charcoal cream, you are also pouring the cream powder into it, and you dip it in a spoonful of barbecue. From the moment you start mixing, coffee and cream mix with a tiny vortex to reveal various patterns. Each coffee cup has its own pattern and mixing patterns. I mean, none of the creamy kahves you drink are the same.
The patterns that are formed by factors such as where and at what speed your scrag moves, and the speed of rotation are independent examples of each other. Of course, on the basis of this, physics rules of nature and complex mathematical formulas lie.
Gilpin, on the other hand, found a connection between the liquids’ confusion principles and the complex digital transactions “hashler” that provided the security of crypto money. The mathematical order underlying the two worlds was very similar to each other.
Similar applications, such as crypto money and digital signatures, are used to digitally share credit card transactions and legal documents. These increasingly widespread methods impose no bounds on sealed, wet signed documents that come together with paper and pen. According to Gilpin, analyzing applied physics fields will ensure that security measures in the digital world reach even better levels.
With the discovery, it is also understood that the computing worlds designed by humans are not merely digital. So the physics rules of nature that are based on crypto money have already begun to work.
