Public private key pairs are becoming common use for securing/storing digital assets, providing proof, determining truth. Where our data lives, who owns the data, and who can that change data are all questions that are being asked. … Continue reading 2018

Interoperable, Scalable Blockchain Protocols

Last week I attended the Wanxiang Global Blockchain Summit in Shanghai. There were a number of sessions but one that really stuck with me was about potential scaling solutions for distributed consensus protocols. There is a concept of polyglot persistence which essentially means certain databases are meant for certain reasons. You have SQL database, noSQL … Continue reading Interoperable, Scalable Blockchain Protocols
