Following last month's blockchain discussion, this month, we'll focus on Ethereum, a blockchain and cryptocurreny with "Smart Contracts" ie a Turing complete scripting language. We'll discuss the architecture of Ethereum and a common Ethereum application architecture.
We'll discuss how the elements of blockchain apply or might apply in some scenarios based on:
Recording and settling toll tag transactions (https://www.coindesk.com/ethereum-iot-project-wins-100k-dubai-blockchain-hackathon/)
Brokering sensor and IoT data (https://databrokerdao.com/)
We'll conclude by very lightly poking through some posted code (https://github.com/Oaken-Innovations/tesla-tollbooth-acorn) of an IoT Ethereum application.
* The presentation will be an Ethereum overview from a technical perspective and won't include any investment information.
