3 Exciting Talks from Bitfury and Emercoin
May 8, 2018 @ 7:15 pm - 8:45 pm
Bitfury and Emercoin will be visiting us in Crypto Valley. We’ll get the opportunity to hear about Exonum, LightningPeach and Emercoin.
We will have three talks of 30 minutes each. As usually the talks will be technology focused and there will be drinks & networking after the meetup.
Talk 1: Exonum – a framework for private blockchains
Speaker: Danyil Poliakov, Head of Presale & Analytics, Bitfury Group
Exonum is an extensible open-source framework for creating blockchain applications. Exonum can be used to create cryptographically powered distributed ledgers in virtually any problem domain, including FinTech, GovTech, and LegalTech. The Exonum framework provides ultimate auditability by itself and greatly enhances it by utilizing the public Bitcoin blockchain. Exonum-based applications and proof-of-concepts have already been implemented in Georgia, Ukraine, Russia, UK, China, etc.
Talk 2: LighningPeach – a solution designed to empower the blockchain ecosystem and drive cryptocurrency mainstream adoption
Speaker: Vladyslav Budichenko, Head of Software Development Team, LightningPeach @ Bitfury Group
LightningPeach is designed to speed up cryptocurrencies transition to mainstream markets, allowing investors and consumers to embrace the full value of digital currency. It’s a 3rd layer protocol, which will complement the existing Lightning Network (2nd layer) of the Bitcoin Blockchain (1st layer) and other blockchains. Implementation of LightningPeach will serve three main functions: Open Flow of Information; Escrow Service; Incentivization Program.
Talk 3: Emercoin – a blockchain platform supporting a wide range of distributed trusted services
Speaker: Kostiantyn Bigus, MD of Emercoin.
Emercoin’s distinctive features include high reliability, robustness and 3-in-one hybrid mining (PoW + MergedMining + PoS). Currently, the Emercoin platform already runs the network security services EmerSSL/EmerSSH, the decentralized domain system EmerDNS, the anti-counterfeit solution EmerDPO, the VOIP solution ENUMer, as well as several other bundled blockchain services. At the heart of many of these innovations is the Emercoin NVS which allows for the arbitrary storage of META-Data on the blockchain.
