SPV Wallets, Overlays, and SPV Processes

Users of the blockchain only need block headers, Merkle paths, and input transactions, not the full blockchain

Transactions are a means to create entries on the Bitcoin Ledger. In the https://github.com/jonesjBSV/bsv-skills-center/blob/master/bsv-skills-center/bsv-protocol-documentation/light-clients-and-spv-processes/broken-reference/README.md topic we saw how various layers serving applications can be built on top of the core network of nodes which provide the base infrastructure.

This section explores the Simplified Payment Verification process in-depth, its usage in front-end user applications known as SPV Wallets, and back-end provider applications and services known as Overlays.
