Limitations and Key Issues with Decentralized Technologies

Nodeunlock has the pleasure of being part of the SingularityU London Blockchain Series.

For the third part in the SingularityU London Blockchain Series, we wanted to peel away the hype and explore the limits and key issues around and affecting blockchain.  Blockchain is THE buzzword of today.

It has been touted as having the ability to change the world immeasurably - but is it the panacea that everyone says it is? What are the problems with blockchain technology and how do we truly solve them?

 ABOUT THE TEAM THAT’S BRINGING YOU THE EVENT

SingularityU London Chapter and WeWork have teamed up to put on a series of events on Blockchain, with the intention of educating the WeWork, SingularityU London Chapter and wider London communities. The idea is for the series to bring someone who has no understand or knowledge on Blockchain to be able to, but the end of the series, have an idea of how to integrate Blockchain in their every day. The series will begin with the basics of what Blockchain is and what it means -a Blockchain 101- and will follow on with specific business use cases and how disruptive the technology will be. Overtime, we will build up to more in-depth topics; the audience will vary, but the idea is to scale up from people who had no knowledge to people with increasing amounts of theoretical and finally practical expertise on the wider Blockchain concept.
