As part of Toronto Blockchain Week, The BlockchainHub (LassondePD, York University) is bringing to you a night of presentation and debate centered around the different use cases to consider in 2019 for permissioned and permissionless Blockchain.

We will cover the following:

-Tokenomics and more...

Stay tuned for the full agenda coming soon...


Presenter#1: Tarun Sharma
Topic: Hyperledger Permissioned Blockchain for HealthCare
Description: Hyperledger implementation in healthcare verticals and its complex challenges around healthcare data laws.

Presenter#2: Leonard Edwin
Topic: Digital & Sovereign Identity Models & Frameworks (Permissioned and Permissionless Blockchains)
Description: Self-Sovereign Identity is the concept that people and businesses can store their own identity data (in PRIVATE WALLETS) on their own devices, and provide it efficiently to those who need to validate it, without relying on a central repository of identity data.

Digital and Decentralized Identity enterprise Solutions are generally built atop public/private key-pair ceremonies - and securely stored in the solution’s Enterprise WALLET (current version of Hyperledger INDY).

Frameworks and protocols include ZERO KNOWLEDGE PROOFS using zk-SNARKs protocol and Decentralized Identifiers (DID) that are fully under the control of the DID subject and independent from any centralized registry, identity provider, or certificate authority.

Presenter#3: Mukul Pal
Topic: Crypto-Economy & Behavioral Finance
Description: Crypto Economy is the new emerging alternative asset which is set to grow. However, investors have the same behavioral biases that they suffer from while investing in other legacy world assets. Success in crypto economy requires an understanding of Alternatives and a conscious effort to overcome behavioral biases.

Presenter#4: Brad Kirby
Topic: Crypto-Economy & Game Theory + Incentivization Mechanisms
Description: The study of Game Theory was invented in 1944 and plays an extremely crucial role in Cryptoeconomics. Its importance is often overlooked.
The average person will attribute Game Theory to the well-known example of the Prisoner’s Dilemma, popularized in the movie A Beautiful Mind, which covers John Nash’s contributions to Game Theory that ultimately earned him a Nobel Prize in Economics.
Extending game theory to computer science, we will explain why Nash’s equilibrium does not hold up. We will explore how the solution to a different dilemma - the Byzantine generals problem – forms the backbone of the Bitcoin consensus algorithm, while exploring the other major consensus algorithms that exist in cryptoeconomics today.
Finally, we will look at the various incentive mechanisms that are introduced as part of consensus algorithms to strengthen the cryptography used in practice today.
