We are pleased to welcome Arthur Breitman and Richard Gendal Brown, both seasoned professionals and veterans working with blockchains, as they give lightning talks on the latest developments from their respective projects. This will be followed by a panel discussion highlighting the merits of public and private blockchains.

Tezos is one of the most advanced blockchains to date, built from the ground up with on-chain governance and security at its foundation. Within the last year, the Tezos Foundation has reaffirmed their partnership with Inria, the French national research institution focusing on computer science and applied mathematics. The position paper was released in 2014.

R3 conversely has one of the most advanced distributed ledgers (Corda) with a focus on enterprise solutions in financial services, healthcare, shipping and insurance. They recently secured a partnership with SBI, cryptocurrency heavy-weights based in Tokyo, Japan. Similarly, they were founded in 2014.

We would also like to give thanks to our friends at Coinscrum for facilitating this event and organising the live-streaming and recordings. Food and drinks will also be provided.
