Drawing on implementation and design experience, this talk delineates the boundary between blockchains, as commonly realized (e.g. Bitcoin, Ethereum), and immutable databases (Datomic, etc.).
We'll explore areas where blockchains might benefit from paying attention to immutable databases, and imagine what a permissionless, collaboratively schematized global database --- a blockchain database --- might look like.
## Approximate schedule:
18.00 Doors open
18.30 Intro and Lightning talks
18.45 Blockchains and Immutable Databases in Clojure
19.30 Discussions / wrap-up
