What is a “wallet”?

A wallet stores the information necessary to transact cryptotokens (in our case Robyns) and cryptocurrencies (in our case, ETH). While wallets are often described as a place to hold or store cryptotokens, due to the nature of the system, tokens are inseparable from the blockchain transaction ledger. A better way to describe a wallet is something that “stores the digital credentials for your token holdings” and allows you to access them.
The Ethereum blockchain uses public-key cryptography, in which two cryptographic keys, one public and one private, are generated. At its most basic, a wallet is a collection of these keys.
As a member of Robin Hood Coop, you get a member wallet, accessible through http://members.robinhoodcoop.org The keys to the wallet can be (re)generated with the list of the 12 words you get when registering. Keep them safe!

What is a blockchain?

A blockchain is a distributed open ledger, basically a database that can be utilised and seen by many users without a centralizing server source of control. It is a cryptographic system in which all transaction and interactions stay registered in blocks, among many computers everywhere, which function as a distributed server. Each block of information gets compiled, another block is created every certain period of time, including the information of the previous one, which can always be unfolded. That is why the database is called blockchain, because it is a chain of blocks of information, that are always open and accessible. This way, the blockchain, besides of guaranteeing security, also grants the highest level of transparency.

It has many other neat features, too. [LINK https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blockchain_(database)] The technology was developed for the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, and has since seen rapid development for a great many purposes. As this technology matures, more complex forms of interaction than moving value from one place to another start to be possible. For example decision making systems are now viable there. With obvious advantages for the Finance sector, there is plenty more embedded promises on this technology that may represent as big paradigm shift as the web was for most in the 90’s, and that is why we must operate there – to keep its possibilities at our service, and not only for the elites.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is an ambitious blockchain project that describes itself as “a decentralized platform for applications that run exactly as programmed without any chance of fraud, censorship or third-party interference.”
