This event will be technical in nature and intended for technical professionals and developers with some previous understanding of blockchain concepts.


Main presentation: Blockchain consensus algorithms POW, POS, DPOS and POA

We will explore several different mechanisms for achieving consensus for blockchains and distributed ledges and their characteristics. Rough agenda:

  • Proof of Work - Bitcoin case study
  • Proof of Stake - NXT and Ethereum case study
  • Delegated Proof of Stake - EOS case study
  • Proof of Authority - Ripple case study
  • We might talk about LPOS (Tezos), POI (NEM) or DAGs (IOTA) if time permits and if we can prepare in time
  • Block commitment rounds - Bitcoin, EOS, Cosmos case study

Presentatiion: Delayed Proof of Work, freedom for multi-chain architecture
This talk will be about Delayed Proof of Work, a consensus mechanism designed and executed by the Komodo team and available for all under the MIT license. Delayed Proof of Work, dPoW, is an interchain mechanism which continuously secures blockchains into Komodo and Bitcoin. That way smaller blockchains running dPoW are independent and secure while recycling Bitcoin’s hash rate. With dPoW we can build the multi-chain future.
