Keynote Speaker: Some researchers argue that building on existing blockchain and DLT frameworks is a mistake, because they are fundamentally unsuited for large-scale, real world applications. They argue that new DLT frameworks must be built to meet real-world demands. Silvio Micali will talk about his work building Algorand. Silvio is a professor at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab. He won the Gödel Prize in 1993, and the Turing Award in 2012. He was elected a Fellow of The Association for Computing Machinery in 2017.
