The CoinGeek London conference is only days away now. As the first major Bitcoin BSV focused event since the February 4th “Genesis” upgrade, attendees can expect several of the discussions to explain its technical workings—and how they can finally deliver the Bitcoin economy Satoshi Nakamoto promised back in 2008.
First day technical track
The first day of CoinGeek events have always looked more at the technical and development site of things, and London is no exception. Guest speakers Jimmy Wales (Wikipedia) and Tom Lee (Fundstrat) have been getting the buzz lately, and for once the main talking point isn’t Dr. Craig Wright—it’s time to talk about the future.
Here’s a little of what you can expect to hear about the nuts and bolts side of Bitcoin, and the changes Genesis is bringing.
Bitcoin SV Node team Technical Director Steve Shadders appeared at the last CoinGeek event in Seoul, where he presented “the Road to Genesis”. This time around, Lead Developer Daniel Connolly will kick things off on Thursday, February 20, with “Bitcoin SV: Genesis is Here, Teranode is Next”.
Teranode is nChain’s multi-layer version of the Bitcoin protocol aimed at large-scale enterprise use. The “tera~” in Teranode refers to terabyte-sized blocks, so it’s designed to handle large-scale applications—that is, until ordinary users of the Bitcoin network need it too. Connolly will look at the challenges involved, and what sorts of software/hardware infrastructure improvements will be necessary.
Bitcoin SV Scaling Test Network Operations Manager Brad Kristensen follows to present the findings from Genesis’ testing period. After that, Steve Shadders will present “Instant Transactions & the P2P Network as Satoshi Designed”.
