Please Sign up and RSVP!
- I’m going
- Maybe next time
This event is open to both blockchain beginners and blockchain experts. We will give you a systemic view of working mechanism of Ethereum and Smart Contract first and then go through some advanced topic together.
Topic: Blockchain Tech Co-Op Session 2/4: Ethereum and Smart Contract
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 second session.
- Data structure of bitcoin and Ethereum
- Ethereum & smart contract
- VM & dApp Layer technologies.
- dApp internals and optimizations , with applications categorizations.
Speaker: Yucong Sun
Yucong is currently the program manager at ABC Blockchain Community for this program, previously he worked at Huobi, and Google, and as technical lead at several startups.
Extra Topic: Beyond Blockchain
Guest Speaker: Emin Gün Sirer
Emin is currently an associate professor of Computer Science at Cornell University. He is also co-director of IC3 and founder of Ava Labs
Emin’s talk will focus on an exciting recent development in blockchain infrastructure, a novel consensus protocol family called Avalanche that combines the best features of the Lamport-Liskov and Nakamoto protocol families that preceded it, to yield a currency with low latency to finality, high throughput, and high degree of decentralization
Extra Topic: Blockchain Data Growth, State Rent & the Nervos Approach
As the blockchain supports more users, the operating cost of a node grows, less nodes are run, and security is reduced. This is the classic ‘tragedy of the commons’: benefits to individuals reduce benefits to all. In this topic, we will discuss the problems caused by an ever-growing blockchain, currently proposed solutions in ETH 1.x and how this challenge addressed in Nervos.
Guest Speaker: Matt Quinn
Matt has run blockchain educational meetups for the last 2+ years. As one of the founders of the Starfish community, he is focused on supporting people and open-source projects with informative blockchain events, outreach and writing.
Guest Speaker: Kevin Wang
Co-founder of Nervos and Token-economics researcher
Co-founder of Launch School, an online developer education platform. Kevin comes from an engineering background and previously worked on enterprise data solutions at IBM Silicon Valley Lab.
Extra Topic: Baits on the Blockchain: Smart Contract Honeypots
In addition to the black and white hats offensive and defensive struggles, a group of grey hat hackers began to make contract honeypots and used obvious false loopholes to anti-hackers. This lecture is a walk through of innovative honeypot techniques.
Guest Speaker: Tina Lee
Lee Ting Ting is currently a research scholar at UC Berkeley Blockchain Lab and co-founder and CTO of Turing Chain. Meanwhile, she is a technical writer with around 3k subscribers worldwide on Medium, writer of HackerNoon, and the co-organizer of Taipei Ethereum Meetup since 2017.
Guest Speaker: Hu Yao-Chieh (Jeff Hu)
Jeff is currently a research scholar at UC Berkeley Blockchain Lab and CEO of Turing chain. Jeff has published three blockchain papers in ACM, IEEE and CPE journal, awarded with best paper in ACM CryBlock’18
