DEFCON 28 – A Deep Dive on Delay Functions !

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.

A Developer Weekend Session on Smart Contract Patterns and Blockchain Security Techniques

It gives immense confidence, optimism and faith in our future generation and the possibilities and potentials of social entrepreneurship and social innovation in India when we get an opportunity to meet a knowledge collective of students who travelled more than 1000 kilometres from rural villages and emerging urban townships across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, only to learn the fundamentals and applications of #BlockchainTechnology.

These young talents have immersed themselves in the finer nuances of Blockchain Technology and Decentralised business models to come up with a set of six product pitches and solution architectures working with mentors and experts from various Blockchain StartUps from across south India. 

A Session on Ethereum Virtual Machine, Smart Contract Patterns and Blockchain Security

It is a true #DeveloperWeekend with #Blockchain enthusiasts from various engineering colleges in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. I could spend some quality time with them yesterday discussing about #SmartContracts #SolidityPatterns #BlockchainSecurity #EthereumVM#IOTSecurity #P2PNetworks #Decentralisation etc. 


It was a great occasion to connect with the community leader for #GovernmentBlockchainAssociation #GBA Bangalore Chapter, Sharat Chandra and a network of Blockchain Entrepreneurs in this exciting event. Thank you #StudyOwl #DeveloperWeekend and #Vedic Learning platform for inviting me and sharing great hospitality all through out the event !

Digital Trust Dialogues at Malabar Cybersecurity Summit 2018

Dear All, It is my pleasure and privilege to be a part of the MalabarCybersecuritySummit2018 organized by RedTeamHackerAcademy with eminent panelists in my favorite calicut city with a network of passionate entrepreneurs and innovators. Cybersecurity has become a wider landscape as the spectre of DigitalTrust and DataPrivacy has attained newer dimensions. Information architecture is no longer an a linear social network. It is entwined with digital identity and economic systems. We will talk about the new age information systems in the context of Blockchain #DigitalForensics QuantumComputing postquantumcryptography zeroknowledgeproofs differentialprivacy etc. All are invited to join us in this future forward dialogue !!
