Notes on The Laws Governing Goods-Character

1.The goods-character of goods of higher order depends on the command of corresponding complementary goods

When we have first order goods it is in our power to use them to satisfy our direct needs. Second order can also satisfy our needs should we have the power to transform them. Similarly should we have third order goods at our disposal we would have the power to transform them into corresponding goods of second order and these in turn into corresponding goods of first order. Hence we can transform goods of third and higher order to the satisfaction of our needs if we have the power to transform them.

Notes on The Causal Connection between Goods

It is necessary to classify the vaious goods according to their inherent characteristics. To learn the place that each good occupies in the causal nexus of goods. And finally to discover the economic laws that they are subject to.

For example one passes from a state of need to a state of satisfaction, sufficient causes for this change must exist. Either one's internal forces are acting to remedy the disturbed state Or external forces acting upon it that can produce the state we call satisfaction.

Notes on deriving Bitcoin addresses using Libbitcoin

Motivation:

  • Derive publicly shareable address
  • Deterministically derive new address from HD keys

Address anatomy

The serialized bitcoin address consists of

  • 1-Byte version prefix (mainnet or testNet)
    0x00 or 0x6F
  • 20-Byte hash digest (double hashed public key)
  • 4-Byte checksum

    The serialized format is encoded in base58, the hash of the public key can be compressed or uncompressed
