An Introduction to Blockchain - Money, Ownership and Trust in a Decentralised System
Presentation by Professor Uwe Dulleck, QUT
Join us for a presentation on this new technology that has important implications for business, regulators and the economy. Drawing on
insights from Information Technology and Security, Mathematics and Economics, the presentation will introduce the Distributed Ledger Technology (Blockchain), relying on the Bitcoin example to illustrate the challenges and the solutions Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) presents to allow people to exchange value in a decentralised system. The lecture will draw on the analogy of money (cash) as another decentralised system allowing people to exchange values and discuss how DLT solves the problem of ownership, transfer and storage of value. The aim is to enable economists in academia and the real world discuss potential application of DLT in a broad set of applications and research questions.
A light lunch will be served from 12.15pm.
