Title

Keynote 4: Whirlwind tour of decentralized finance and blockchain

Abstract/Description

Your tour begins with Bitcoin and Ethereum: how they work, what can be done with them, and what the future holds. Next, a visit to learn about open problems: alternatives to conventional proof-of-work consensus, scalability, data availability, stablecoins, oracles, privacy. Finally, you'll see fancy new cryptographic protocols based on zero-knowledge proofs: what they accomplish and speculation for the future.
