Montréal Scaling Bitcoin: Bitcoin Scalability Workshops (Phase I)

Date et lieu

Du samedi 12 septembre 2015 à 09h00 au dimanche 13 septembre 2015 à 17h00.

2200 rue Mansfield Montréal Montréal


In recent months the Bitcoin development community has faced difficult discussions of how to safely improve the scalability and decentralized nature of the Bitcoin network. To aid the technical consensus building process we are organizing a pair of workshops to collect technical criteria, present proposals and evaluate technical materials and data with academic discipline and analysis that fully considers the complex tradeoffs between decentralization, utility, security and operational realities. This may be considered as similar in intent and process to the NIST-SHA3 design process where performance and security were in a tradeoff for a security critical application. Since Bitcoin is a P2P currency with many stakeholders, it is important to collect requirements as broadly as possible, and through the process enhance everyone’s understanding of the technical properties of Bitcoin to help foster an inclusive, transparent, and informed process. Those with technical interest are invited to participate in this pair of workshops.
