2019-08-29 Blockchain Nights # 015
We take a closer look at the infrastructure of smart contract platforms and thus the fundament of so many projects the community put hopes, money and effort in. Issues regarding security and structure should be observed cautiously. An example would be weaknesses in the security of the Ethereum network layer that one of our guests will talk about.
We start with lightening talks of each 25 minutes + 5 minutes questions per invited speaker. After a 10 minute break the end event will be concluded by a 30-minute panel discussion. The audience is invited to contribute to this discussion.
