Watching for forks in the Bitcoin network

1. Understand what a fork is, and the need for a fork monitor.
2. Explain forkscanner, a rust implementation of fork monitoring, and how it uses the bitcoin network.
3. Demonstrate usage of the forkscanner.

We'll talk about watching forks, stale blocks, potential double spend attempts.
We'll show our implementation of a fork scanner, and show how to bring it up and configure it.

Some basic BTC knowledge, though we can go over some of that for background info.
If they would like to follow along, I'd recommend installing docker, and nodejs.
Access to nodes will be needed, we can look at providing access to ours.
