First of all – HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Start will be at 7:00pm
While the last meetups where rather business oriented, this time we want to return to a technical perspective of Blockchain technology.
Topic 1 – Welcome and some insights to Austrias first project for a public Blockchain by Thomas Zeinzinger (lab10 collective)
Thomas will give a short intro about the BlockchainHub network and then talk about the current work done towards the first in Austria initiated public Blockchain built by the lab10 collective.
Topic 2 – Real Live Use Cases of Blockchain by Dr. Peter Teufl (A-SIT)
Peter is the GM of A-SIT Plus, a TU Graz IAIK spin-off, which provided the cryptographic know-how and IT-Security competence for building the system for the Austrian finance administration used for cash-registers since last year (Stichwort: “Registrierkasse”).
You might know that this system uses basically a Blockchain without all the other things needed for a cryptocurrency. We will get a technical insight to this practical application of Blockchain logic and how you can think of it as one part of a toolbox to build use-case specific applications. Also other use-cases and technological challenges will be touched by Peter, so that you should get a better view beyond the hype. Looking forward to see you!
Your BlockchainHub Graz team: Thomas, Didi, Sandra, Max, Bernhard and Tom
PS: Presentation will be in English or German, depending on participants.
If you like what we do, please consider donating to the BlockchainHub Graz and tell us what cryptocurrency you would be willing to use.
