At the height of the financial crisis in 2008, new Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), also known as Blockchain, emerged, combining peer to peer networking, cryptography and distributed systems to develop a new type of database. The primary breakthrough with this new database is that everyone has access to a copy of the same information that can be mathematically proven to be the same, thus auto-reconciling. Rajesh Nair, the VP of Engineering at Paxos, will cover some of the basics of blockchain as well as preview some of the technology’s advancements. This discussion will reveal how blockchain developers are playing a pivotal role on the accelerating adoption of digital assets and how blockchain technology, being tamper-proof and immutable, is a major innovation for people in database networks, allowing anyone to have complete control over their assets without relying on intermediaries.
