# What is a Bitcoin node? — Bitpanda Academy

But it succumbed to the succession problem, like all authoritarian systems; Xi made himself Premier-for-life and the country is now exhibiting all the usual failures of authoritarian countries. Xi broke the "technocratic consensus" which was present after Deng, of central committee members who strove for competence and fact-based decision-making. That was a surprisingly effective type of junta government which led to lots of thinkpieces about whether authoritarian China would beat the democratic west.

If yes, then my question is then why can't the full node simply do the following: (1) send its UTXO set to the SPV client; (2) SPV client then filters the UTXOs of its interest and put those UTXOs in its own UTXO set.

Of course, there are many legitimate arguments against blockchain-based digital currencies. Lack of stability has caused some people to get very rich, while a majority have still lost thousands of dollars. First, crypto isn’t a very regulated market. Additionally, crypto is incredibly volatile due to speculators. Many governments were quick to jump into crypto, but few have a staunch set of codified laws regarding it.

In the UK your neighbours would call the council and you might have your dog killed; in Japan they would put up increasingly large signs with pictures of cute embarrassed dogs, and maybe you’d get a visit from the local Obachan Enforcement Unit (yabai!); in America you’d get a SWAT team or a seat on the supreme court depending on your race; in China’s (putative, probably non-existent) social credit system you would lose points until your ability to do certain things (like buy tickets on a bullet train) was affected. Let us consider an example of a form of social control: dogshit. Suppose you let your dog shit on the local streets and don’t clean it up, in contravention of local ideals of a clean neighbourhood. Regarding social credit systems, I wasn’t trying to present ASBOs as some ideal form of social control, just trying to point out that every society has something.

Any data stored on blockchain is unable to be modified, making the technology a legitimate disruptor for industries like payments, cybersecurity and healthcare. Blockchain technology is a decentralized, distributed ledger that stores the record of ownership of digital assets. Discover more on what it is, how it’s used and its history.

At that point, it needs to resynchronise its UTXO set. So, it does the following: (1) get the block headers of blocks X to Y; (2) construct a bloom filter for its addresses and request a full node to send all the transactions matching this bloom filter from block X to Y; (3) the full node does so and if a match is found, sends the transaction data along with a merkle proof to the SPV client; (4) SPV client verifies the proof and if it's correct updates its UTXO set accordingly. Suppose an SPV client goes offline at block X (meaning it has block headers until block X) and crypto then comes back online when the blockchain is at block Y.

The data in the block. The nonce — "number used only once." A nonce in blockchain is a whole number that’s randomly generated when a block is created, which then generates a block header hash. The hash — a hash in blockchain is a number permanently attached to the nonce. For Bitcoin hashes, these values must start with a huge number of zeroes (i.e., be extremely small).
