Dr. Lionel Wolberger, a co-founder of a funded blockchain startup, will walk you through the blockchain basics. Ledgers, consensus, crypto, bitcoin and zcash…. These technologies have been hyped as the new Web 3.0. What do they really do? Which aspects do I need to know and what I should apply to my startup, or watch out for in my potential competitors?

This talk is in ENGLISH.


18:00 - 18:30 - Gathering and Networking

18:30 - 19:20 - Blockchain for Dummies, Dr. Lionel Wolberger

You will learn about key blockchain capabilities such as decentralized ledgers, consensus based transactions, cryptocurrency creation and exchange, non-fungible tokens, smart contracts, along with related cryptographic topics such as PKI and ZKP. Bitcoin was only the first system using these new capabilities. The topic has so much hype, from cryptocurrency crashes to cryptokitties, but under the hype is real innovation that has been called Web 3.0. How can you assess whether these technologies are right for your startup? We look at the root of trust in your system or service, the transactions you handle, states you track, decision making mechanisms, and general issues around persistent data.
