Abstract:
Blockchain has emerged as one of the most promising technology of this decade. It provides "Trust" and "Transparency" as a service through cryptographically verifiable proofs. Several variants of this algorithm have evolved in past few years and Ethereum is based on one of such algorithms. Vitalik Buterin is a Co-Founder of Ethereum platform. Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference. These apps run on a custom built blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property. This enables developers to create markets, store registries of debts or promises, move funds in accordance with instructions given long in the past (like a will or a futures contract) and many other things that have not been invented yet, all without a middle man or counterparty risk. Vitalik will touch upon various current and relevant aspects of blockchain technology in this talk. We welcome you all to attend this event. Open for all.
