Double Spending

Double spending is the act of spending the same cryptocurrency twice, essentially trying to make two transactions with the same funds. This is a potential risk with digital currencies as they are purely digital and can be copied, unlike physical cash.

To prevent double spending, cryptocurrency transactions are recorded on a public ledger called a blockchain. Each transaction is verified by nodes on the network, which check that the sender has sufficient funds to make the transaction and that the transaction is not a duplicate. Once verified, the transaction is added to the blockchain and cannot be altered or deleted.

Double spending is a concern with decentralized digital currencies because there is no centralized authority to prevent it. However, most cryptocurrencies have implemented measures to prevent double spending, such as the use of a consensus algorithm or proof-of-work mechanism. These mechanisms ensure that transactions are verified and recorded in a secure and immutable way.

Examples of double spending attacks include the infamous 51% attack, where an attacker gains control of the majority of the network's computing power and can then manipulate transactions, including double spending. Another example is a race attack, where an attacker sends two conflicting transactions simultaneously and tries to get one confirmed before the other, resulting in the double spending of the same cryptocurrency.

Hashed Timelock Contract (HTLC)
A Hashed Timelock Contract (HTLC) is a smart contract used in cryptocurrencies to facilitate transactions between parties who don't necessarily trust each other. An HTLC ensures that funds can only be released to the intended recipient within a certain time frame.
