Event description

Description

Talk Summary:

In this talk, Ben will introduce some fundamentals of cryptocurrency, before diving deep into Java bytecode and classloading, to discuss a new way to make the JVM environment suitable for running ‘smart contracts’. These contracts have applications to distributed cryptographic ledgers, blockchains and cryptocurrencies. Ben will then introduce a real example based on R3’s Corda ledger (part of the Hyperledger project) and discuss some future directions and practical applications.
Developers who are interested in learning more about the JVM’s bytecode and classloading subsystems should attend. No previous knowledge or experience of distributed ledgers, cryptocurrency or blockchains is required.
