6:00 pm PT - Blockchain in 12 Easy Steps

Abstract: In Dave’s presentation he will point out that the concept of “ledgers” appear throughout our lives: from financial environments and car titles to citizenship records and health care information. He will also assert that the study of ledgers has, up to now, been pretty boring with extensive apologies to accountants in the audience. He will point out that blockchain technology “reinvents” ledgers and is being successfully used to revise many existing applications and provide solutions to problems that have been unsolvable (like getting funding to refugees without the risk of corrupt administrations fraudulently taking huge amounts.) He will start with the idea of decentralized computing environments and end with an explanation of the way blockchain technology changes how ledgers are created, managed and trusted. He will also just briefly touch on a few related technologies: smart contracts, oracles, non-fungible tokens and cryptocurrencies. He will also answer the question that Dilbert’s boss asks: What is the best color for a blockchain? By the way, some would say, the steps are easy because he skips over the hard parts.
