Blockchain 2: The Blockening
During the concluding remarks of his critically acclaimed 2017 talk “Blockchain: Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the Future of Everything”, David Shattuck made two specific predictions about the future of the cryptocurrency space. In this highly anticipated sequel, we will revisit those predictions and explore both problems and solutions that have materialized along the path of progress. This presentation will include an overview of the Ethereum 2.0 upgrades, a unique real-world use-case for blockchain-based currency, code samples showing how to implement blockchain payments in a C# application, and a demonstration of a piece of modern user-facing infrastructure. “Don’t Trust. Verify. Also, don’t miss this talk.”
David’s 2017 talk is also available.
