How to join
dApp internals and optimizations, with applications categorizations
Blockchain Technology Co-op program is a brand new program lead by ABC Blockchain community, a non-profit organization. This program hope to create an environment to further general understanding of fundamental blockchain technology, starting with foundational layer technology, eg. data structure and consensus algorithm, and move upward towards real world applications and give pointers to future research.
There will be 4 sessions in total and in this event we will go through the fourth session.
- Data structure of bitcoin and Ethereum
- Ethereum & smart contract
- VM & dApp Layer technologies.
- dApp internals and optimizations, with applications categorizations.
Speaker: Yucong Sun

Effective Proof-of-Stake: An Practical and Decentralized Staking Mechanism
In this session, we will discuss the design thinking of PoS systems and introduce a new staking mechanism called Effective Proof-of-Stake (EPoS). EPoS is designed to solve all of these issues while still maintaining the decentralization aspect of the blockchain. Medium
Guest Speaker: RongJian Lan
