Trust in Decentralized Networks: A Technology Perspective

The Loft at Baro - 485 King Street West Toronto, M5V 3M4 Toronto
Tue, Apr 23, 2019, 6:00 PM (AST)

About this event

Internet lacks trust and security models at the core protocol layers. Users have no way to identify sources of information, prove or authenticate properties about it. Application layer solutions (e.g., secure messaging, PGP, https, TLS, etc.) were therefore created to facilitate basic use cases that require trust, authenticity, and security. 
Using web3's decades of innovation in cryptography, decentralized network design, digitally native assets, mechanism design, and other tools we can fundamentally redesign the foundation for shared decentralized infrastructure.
Distributed ledger technology allows us to place security and trust in the base protocol layer.
Algorand is calling innovators, builders, technologists, and the broader community to share and discuss how to enable such a future.
Whether you're attending the Rebuild Conference or taking part in Toronto Blockchain Week, join us on the third floor of Baro in downtown Toronto on Tuesday, April 23rd.
Admission is free, but space is limited.

Potential Conversations

  1. role of permissioned and permissionless networks
  2. authentication of information and its source
  3. governance mechanisms
  4. interoperability between decentralized networks
Thanks for your interest, and thanks for helping to Rebuild a better Internet and a better future.
