Personal Privacy and Security – two critically important concepts in today’s Digital Identity world. Identity thieves are on the constant prowl, looking for access to information that will ultimately lead to a payday through outright theft like hacking a wallet, impersonation, ransomware, and extortion, etc. Deep cryptography is the answer, linked data that provides access to components, not the whole, while preventing awareness of data structures using contextual references. Consent-mapping, zero-knowledge proofs, tiered and granular data fidelity, key value store using merkle tree records, read-write, off-chain database synchronization… How do these new technologies produce a simple user experience that solves the very real Digital Identity dilemma? Register on Crowdcast and then join us to learn exactly how all these elements can be tied together.
Monday, June 8, 2020 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM EDT
Every 2nd Monday of the month.
Come enjoy learning about Bitcoin and sharing what you know with others. Alert: Monday night meetings will be suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak. It is unfortunate that these measures are necessary, but for our members and society in general, this is the responsible way to go. We recommend bookmarking this meetup page and checking back to see when the Monday night meeting resume.
