Decentralization, blockchain, distributed ledgers, and crypto assets are all important for the internet of the future. This blockchain meetup discusses possible new consensus algorithms, their pros and cons, and their implications for the blockchain industry as a whole. Will Proof-of-Work disappear? How much better is Proof-of-Stake? What merit do new cryptographic algorithms like IOTA’s Tangle hold?
Join our first Disrupt meetup of the blockchain and crypto assets community in Cologne. It aims at bringing together blockchain enthusiastic enterprises and individuals that want to get to know the technology, as well as understand how it can be used and applied.
