Speaker: Dmytro Piatkivskyi, PhD candidate, NISlab

Title: Bitcoin and the world of blockchain.

Abstract: 

The world of virtual currencies is exponentially growing having ambitions to replace many of the present-day financial systems. Bitcoin, the first de-cenralized cryptocurrency, has hitherto been the most successful one out of many existing virtual currencies. Yet, having many limitations, Bitcoin is continuously being refined. Scalability has been the biggest issue up until now which encouraged an invention of off-chain transactions. The off- chain transactions are Bitcoin transactions that do not get on the Bitcoin’s public ledger, blockchain. Such a concept changes the whole idea in a principle way. The presentation will discuss what problems de-cenralized cryptocurrencies try to solve, what are the current limitations and approaches to solve them.

About Speaker:  Received a Bachelor degree in Information security from National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” in 2012. Graduated Gjøvik University College in 2014 with a Master degree in Information secuirty. Before joining Testimon Forensics Research Group at NISlab as a PhD student, was employed at UBS AG as a software developer, Investment Banking department.
