报告题目: Blockchain Security Mechanisms and Future applications
报告内容：Blockchain as an emergent technology is quickly gaining ground as a decentralised distributed trustless database in the form of a linked-list data structure. The non-deterministic nature of public blockchain consensus protocols is worthwhile to be discussed and argues that the probabilistic validity of a new block does not provide adequate guarantees of accuracy and integrity which in the case of cryptocurrencies could result in quite substantial asset losses. A new line of thinking in regards to the validity of data in blockchains is necessary. Furthermore any potential blockchain applications are in the radar for the current and future technology market. Can we really reach what we have envisaged on this magic blockchain phenomenal?
