State of the Art Cryptography in Blockchains

Crypto means cryptography, and that’s worth remembering in the context of the blockchain boom.

Underneath the hood of hype and finance and legalese, there is an engine of cryptography that powers the whole vehicle. If anything goes wrong on the crypto layer, you can forget about “losing” your coins. You never had them in the first place.

In this event we have a look at a few examples of cutting edge cryptography in the context of blockchains.

Take part in this hybrid (on-site and on-line) event and hear from the academic and industry leading experts who put the Crypto in Crypto Valley.
