Thank you so much Inblox Network and Inblox Events for kindly featuring the excerpts of my thoughts on the topic – Public Chains v/s Private Chains from our fierce debate on historic, economic and societal aspects of blockchain technology. The reflections from this creative conversation is still fresh in our emerging context of innovations and intricacies in the roadmap to scalability and security in distributed ledgers. Please let me share these thoughts to invite your thoughts on the road to a meaningful metamorphosis in the pursuits for scalability in public blockchains and the pursuits for purpose in private blockchains.
SCTECH 2020 is a global event connecting where the supply chain strategy, operations, finance, sustainability, engineering & financial professionals come together every year to share technology & practices focusing on efficiency/profitability. This year, due to COVID-19, SCTECH2020 is a Virtual Conference. Deloitte, EY, BCG, Morpheus.Network and (ISCEA -International Supply Chain Education Alliance) are the key sponsors of this event. It is my pleasure and privilege to be a speaker and panelist in this premier event together with the eminent leaders and visionaries like Dr. Marcell Vollmer, Massimo Buonomo, Cynthia Kalina-Kaminsky, Ph.D., Ednilson Bernardes, Ann Rosenberg, Robert Kepczynski, Chris Turner, etc. I am truly grateful to Thorsten Mebs, and ISCEA for the kind invitation and support to contribute to the future forward perspectives on supplychain finance, digitisation and sustainability.

In the DEFCON 28, Tejaswa Rastogi and myself teamed up to present our research on integrating a new kind of cryptography powered randomness for radical markets blending RANDAO and Verifiable Delay Functions (VDF) to prevent DoS and DDoS attacks on Ethereum 2.0 beacon chains. This was inspired by our work in StarkWare Veedo Streak Hackathon earlier this year. Today we are continuing this work in EPIC Knowledge Society in a project known as ‘TemereNet’. We have also recently integrated VDF powered decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) contracts using the Veedo Beacon Contracts created by StarkWare into our FusionLedger specification for emerging and exponential use cases in electronic auctions, electronic pricing, electronic invoicing networks, electronic voting etc. Please connect with us if you would like to understand more about the power of cryptography and consensus in creating radical markets powered by decentralisation.
