Dr. Angelo De Caro

 Permissioned blockhains allow a well identifiable set of participants to run blockchain technology in a setting where the involved parties require some means of identifying each other while not necessarily fully trusting the other members of the network. This represents an emerging alternative to permissionless blockchains) in which anybody can participate, e.g Bitcoin, Ethereum) that better addresses the needs of business applications of blokchain and distributed ledgers. In this talk, we will explore permissioned blockhain technologies with a focus on the Hyperledger Project, a prominent open source initiative under the patronage of the Linux Foundation, dedicated to bringing blockchain technologies to businesses.
