Blockchain Meetup
Wed, 31 January 2018, 18:30 - 21:00
Amsterdam, Primalbase
Network architecture, Solutions, Consensus protocols, and why it is important
Description
Blockchain technology has been lauded as one of the most disruptive technologies of recent times. It is therefore no wonder that it continues to command attention across industry and academia, as well as inspire numerous startups worldwide.

Despite its massive potential, blockchain technology is still relatively immature. For this reason, we are yet to see working examples of its wider adoption in mainstream industries. Before this can happen, it is imperative that issues surrounding the security and stability of blockchain are resolved.

The meetup will feature presentations and discussions covering the primary concern in the future development of blockchain - ensuring its security and stability.

How secure is blockchain really?

Security is one of the core principles underlying Blockchain technology. It is for this reason that it had been integrated into several industries looking to streamline processes by removing intermediaries and controlling bodies.

However, before implementing blockchain technology, it is important to review and verify that the proposed network architecture and conditions do not lead to future security issues.

Join us in evaluating the the current state of blockchain technology and its maturity; exploring potential security risks; and examining methods to maintain the security and stability of blockchain applications.
