Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 23 April 2018 – Blockchain Security discussed at the Global Blockchain Conference 2018. Blockchain technology has fueled one of the most enthusiastic burst of innovations in applied cryptography in years but outstanding problems in security and privacy research must be solved for blockchain technologies to go beyond the hype and reach its full potential.

 

During the presentation we discussed the three grand challenges on cybersecurity in blockchain:

  • Blockchain as a Threat
  • Blockchain Security-by-Design
  • Blockchain-driven Cybersecurity

 

It is concluded that more research is required to improve security in smart contracts and in the incentives as imposed by consensus protocols.

 

We would like to thank Karen Thomas for the great organisation and the great audience!
