Talk 3: Why the answer to life, the universe and everything is 42 - a Merkle Tree enlightenment.
The lecturer will show you how to do the calculation with a chalk and a blackboard. This lecture reveals how we can store an unlimited number of proofs in 256 bits of data with the use of Merkle Tree, in the similar fashion that the entire truth of the universe can be condensed in a scaler, namely 42.
