Tour of Blockchain
Blockchain has become the new “looking for problems” technical solution in domains from diamond tracking, to securities clearing and property registers to KYC customer checking. In this talk, we will briefly review the fundamental ideas underpinning blockchain technologies and consider what problems its defining architectural characteristics make it suitable for. We will get an idea of what it is like to work with blockchain technology by showing how to write and execute some simple "smart contracts" in a development environment. We will cover what a blockchain is and is not, the architectural characteristics of blockchain technology, possible uses of blockchain and the development process for smart contract based systems.
