The event will take place on 28 of February, at Turin University, in “Aula Buzano”.

Following a short abstract:

“Bitcoin is a digital currency that operates without any central authority. The key technology behind Bitcoin is the blockchain, a public and distributed register that stores coin exchanges that take place in Bitcoin. The seminar will show how Bitcoin and blockchain work. Some of the myths that have been created around this technology will also be disproved. Lastly, will be presented a research work on the problem of scalability, a problem that prevents Bitcoin from becoming a world-class payment system.”
