MiniCollege Class at Skidmore
I'll be offering a MiniCollege class during Skidmore's Celebration Weekend 2022. It will be held on October 15 at 2pm in the Center for Integrated Sciences (CIS) room 233. My topic is Blockchain and Cryptocurrency. I'll provide some background on blockchain design, its relationship to cryptocurrencies, and uses for blockchain beyond the cryptocurrency realm. Finally, with the help of a current student, we'll demonstrate the operation of a Distributed Application (Dapp) using the Ethereum blockchain and smart contract capabilities. If you are curious about blockchain and/or cryptocurrencies and would like to take a peek behind the hype please stop by.
Here is a link to the presentation slides which will be used to frame the class discussion.
