Hashgraph: Disrupting Blockchain and Building the Trust Layer of the Internet
Presented by SGInnovate Partnered with Swirlds
Hashgraph is a fundamentally new type of distributed ledger technology/consensus algorithm, developed by the US-based company Swirlds, that is faster (few hundred thousand pre-shard transactions per second), fairer (consensus time stamping) and more secure (asynchronous Byzantine fault tolerant) than blockchain.
Swirlds will be making a big public announcement on 13 March, and the executive team will be back in Singapore on 24 March to present the Hashgraph technology, the product roadmap and opportunities for developers and other members of the community to participate in the rapid growth of the Hashgraph ecosystem.
