Blockchain from the Firehose

Presented by: Jacob Coulter

Take an in-depth look at Bitcoin, the blockchain that started it all. This session will cover all the pieces required to build a trustless distributed ledger. Learn from the most fundamental building blocks like hashing algorithms, transactions, and blocks, to the more advanced concepts such as merkle trees and elliptical curve cryptography. Knowing when not to use a blockchain is as important as knowing when to use one. Cut through the hype of “Blockchain Iced Tea” and learn where the technology solves real problems and where it is unnecessary overhead.
