Jae Kwon, CEO and founder of Tendermint is also one of the conference’s featured speakers. He will be talking in Blockchain SF’s morning session that kicks off at 9:45 a.m., entitled “Bitcoin vs. Blockchain.”
“I’m looking forward to the Blockchain Conference,” Kwon said. “We’re working on new [Tendermint Socket Protocol] applications relevant to the discussion that blends the boundaries between public and private, tokenless and tokenful.”
A pivotal aspect of TMSP is its versatility allowing you to create blockchain applications easily in any language. In addition, the technology utilizes a consensus protocol that requires no proof-of-work mining, which is a stark contrast to Bitcoin’s transactional network.
Tendermint has been gaining momentum lately with its approach to Blockchain consensus while the word Blockchain itself has been an emerging topic in the FinTech world.
“This event brings together leaders from the blockchain industry to the broader FinTech world discussing the latest innovations and developments, from decentralizing technologies to a cross-section of financial applications,” says Lisa Cheng, Vanbex Group CEO and one of the conference’s featured speakers.
Cheng will be delivering a talk on the future of blockchain during the conference’s afternoon session which starts at 3:30 p.m.
