A story about blockchain and consensus
Ovidiu Deac - Software consultant @ Ed-IT.ro
Europa room, 3rd floor
12nd November, 11:00-12:00
Trying to keep things as simple as possible, we will go through the design decisions behind blockchain platforms. We will touch the basics, talk a bit about the proof-of-work approach to consensus, how proof-of-stake is different and about Casper - a family of proof-of-stake protocols - and its implementation in RChain.
