Beyond DAGS: Introducing Proof of Propagation & scalable blockchains w/ GunDB!

The Main Event (LIMITED TO 50 ENGINEERS):

SF Cryptocurrency Devs is an engineers-only developer meetup for blockchain engineers seeking to learn about the innovation surrounding new and emerging applications of cryptography to digital currencies.

We would like to introduce SF Cryptocurrency engineers to AXE, a cryptocurrency built on top of CRDT and DAG data structures with GUN, a tremendously popular Open Source graph database and P2P synchronization protocol.

Storage, computation, and bandwidth are the vital cornerstones of digital infrastructure. A flood of cryptocurrency incentives exist for storage (Filecoin, Sia, etc.) and computation (Ethereum, Dfinity, etc.), but the massive scale and low latency requirements of bandwidth has left it with few solutions.

Mark will be presenting how he combined a (not often talked about) technique mentioned by Satoshi in the original Bitcoin paper, plus his work on realtime cryptographically secured decentralized data sync, to create a scalable solution.

SF Crypto Devs Presents: A Deep Dive into the IoTeX Network

The Main Event (LIMITED TO 50 ENGINEERS):

SF Cryptocurrency Devs is an engineers-only developer meetup for blockchain engineers seeking to learn about the innovation surrounding new and emerging applications of cryptography to digital currencies.

We would like to introduce SF Cryptocurrency and Bitcoin engineers to IoTeX!

A breif summary of the presentation:
Blockchain, a form of distributed ledger technology, has been gaining tremendous attention due to its immutable nature and the associated security and privacy benefits. The introduction of blockchain into Internet of Things (IoT) domain brings a number of advantages such as facilitating the sharing of IoT services and resources and enabling the automation of time-consuming workflows. However, due to the tight cost and constrained resources of high-volume IoT devices, integrating blockchain into IoT systems is particularly challenging. We present IoTeX, the next generation IoT-oriented blockchain platform with strong scalability, privacy, isolability and developability for incubating new IoT applications and ecosystems. This talk will focus on the software architecture of IoTeX network, the RDPoS consensus protocol as well as security and privacy features. Some potential IoT uses cases that can be powered by the IoTeX blockchain will also be briefly discussed.
