“Cryptocurrencies” refer to techniques for purely digital currencies. The most famous of these is Bitcoin, but since its creation numerous other currencies have also been created, relying on the underlying Distributed Ledger Technology to create a publicly verifiable list of transactions: the blockchain. There is considerable interest from the data science community, the financial sector and government in other applications of this technology, and other instantiations of cryptocurrencies that may offer different levels of anonymity, untraceability and verifiability.

In this talk IOHK's chief scientist Aggelos Kiayias presents “Secure Decentralized Blockchains without Proofs of Work”. At the Alan Turning Institute in London.
