Want to Understand Blockchain? 


While the blockchain space is still very much in its infancy, the promise of distributed ledger technology presents valuable and unique solutions for a variety of global issues. However, in order to ensure true mainstream adoption, the blockchain development community is racing to overcome several key performance issues which bottleneck these adoption efforts. This presentation will outline some of these performance issues and highlight the methodology used to generate and make sense of large amounts of performance-related data in order to understand how to best address these bottlenecks.
