About this event

Introduction to Blockchain Technology
Pratap Tambe, Tata Consultancy Services
Blockchains offers a cheaper way of conducting digital value exchange and/or asset-transfer transactions among nodes in peer-to-peer networks. This way is cheaper because it ensures integrity through decentralised consensus algorithms not requiring trust in central party(s).
Blockchains can be public (such as BitCoin) or private, and this distinction, and the associated permissions, as well as the relevant KYC regulations, will be discussed.
We will also talk about TCS work related to public permissioned networks and talk about the kind of solutions that can be created using them in the insurance domain for individual insurers and for consortiums of insurers


Lecture starts at 19:30, but tea/coffee and biscuits will be available from 19:00
