Stan Kladko at ETHCC on the Mathematics of POS Blockchains
If you weren't able to go to ETHCC Paris, not a problem. Watch SKALE cofounder and CTO Stan Kladko's presentation meant to provide an intro to the mathematics of Proof of Stake blockchains at a level accessible to everyone new to cryptography. He discusses basic stages of a provably-secure blockchain, such as pending queue, block proposal, block commit and finalization, as he covers the great mathematical algorithms that are used to efficiently implement it, such as Distributed Key Generation, BLS signatures and asynchronous binary consensus. By end of the talk you will hopefully understand how a provably secure PoS blockchain actually works.
SKALE is a multichain network composed of an unlimited number of secure, decentralized, high-performance Ethereum Blockchains. These SKALE Chains were purpose-built to bring Web3 to billions of consumers around the world. SKALE’s advanced cryptography and pooled security model is fast, secure, and decentralized, allowing developers to deliver amazing user experiences to end users without gas fees or latency. SKALE’s modular and extensible platform includes EVM functionality, file storage, interchain messaging, and machine learning capabilities, but is open sourced and designed to allow developers to easily use best of breed solutions when necessary. This architecture further allows applications to run completely on SKALE chains without centralized dependencies. The SKALE Network is an open source project with many contributors including SKALE Labs, Inc. headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
The SKALE Network’s supporters include Arrington Capital, Blockchange, ConsenSys Labs, Hashed, HashKey, Floodgate, Multicoin Capital, Recruit Holdings, Signia VP, and Winklevoss Capital. The SKALE Network is supported by many of the top validators in the world including 01NODE, Ankr, Anonstake, Audit One, Blockdaemon, Blockware, Chainflow, Chainode, Chorus One, Cypher Core, Dokia Capital, Figment Networks, FreshSkale, Hashed x DELIGHT, Hashquark, Staked, Stakin, Stake With Us, WolfEdge Capital, as well as Staking Facilities. SKALE Network utilised the $SKL token which is listed on 25 exchanges globally, including Binance, Coinbase, FTX, Gemini, Huobi, OKEx and more.
