“Blockchain 101” with Professor Jan Liphardt

“Blockchain 101” with Professor Jan Liphardt from Stanford

What is “Proof of Work”? What is “Proof of Stake”? What is a “51% attack”? “Why are blockchains hard to scale?” Please join us for an interactive virtual brown bag lunch with Professor Liphardt as he graciously helps us demystify the workings of today’s public blockchains.

Professor Liphardt has a physics background and is interested in the intersection of data and health. At Stanford, he teaches a class on blockchains and distributed trust, and he is the founder of the Stanford Distributed Trust Initiative (https://cryptolab.stanford.edu)
