Pure ESM package

Pure ESM package

The package that linked you here is now pure ESM. It cannot be require()'d from CommonJS.

This means you have the following choices:

  1. Use ESM yourself. (preferred)
    Use import foo from 'foo' instead of const foo = require('foo') to import the package. You also need to put "type": "module" in your package.json and more. Follow the below guide.
  2. If the package is used in an async context, you could use await import(…) from CommonJS instead of require(…).
  3. Stay on the existing version of the package until you can move to ESM.

Blog post about how Bitcoin works in a way non computer people can understand it

Bitcoin for laypeople

(Chinese version available here, courtesy of @jiangplus

(This is an English translation of my Danish blog post, Bitcoin for voksne)

Bitcoin is a digital currency that has no central authority. It's a currency where you do not have to rely on anyone to know it's worth it. As a concept, it's similar to gold. Gold has a value in itself, as opposed to, say a $100 note that only has value if the U.S. government says it has value. Similarly, the idea of ​​Bitcoins is that they have value by themselves.

Let's try to understand how Bitcoin works.
