Introduction to Blockchain Nodes + Building the Tech to Power Blockchains



Introduction to Blockchain Nodes
What is a blockchain node and what does it do? What are light nodes and why will many future applications depend on them? Parity Technologies’ Thibaut Sardan will give an overview of node types and functionalities. Attend this presentation to get a greater understanding of the instrumental role nodes play in blockchains and their use.

Building the Tech to Power Blockchains
