Details

With Homestead released, the focus now shifts towards the Metropolis milestone. Meanwhile Vitalik, Vlad and co are already working towards the next major version of the ethereum protocol. Ethereum 2.0 comes with big changes trying to achieve a better consensus layer, scalability and an even more generalised platform.

This Meetup we'll take a look at the Casper consensus protocol which aims to replace the current PoW-based consensus protocol in ethereum 2.0.

In addition Ewald Hesse will talk about his project called GridSingularity (http://gridsingularity.com/).
