Event description

Description

Primalbase is delighted to host a Binary District event on the future of Blockchain with Joshua Lind.

Blockchain protocols are inherently limited in transaction throughput and latency. Recent efforts to address this problem have focused on off-chain payment channels. While such channels can improve transaction speeds, deploying them securely on top of the Bitcoin blockchain has been difficult.

This event will address how do we maintain low latency and high throughput when secure implementation requires changes to the underlying protocol and ecosystem?
