Beyond Blockchain - IOTA Meetup NYC x GA
About This Event
IOTA Meetup NYC and General Assembly New York are bringing Beyond Blockchain to GA's New York HQ.
This month, IOTA Meetup NYC’s very own Kevin Chen and Dan Simerman will walk through the upcoming Qubic platform, IXI Hub as it relates to real world adoption in the world of blockchain. Our discussion will revolve around how to take advantage of these upcoming releases, as well as the implications of these tools on the blockchain industry and the economy at large.
This will be equal parts presentation and open forum - so come with your questions and lets discuss the future of distributed ledger tech together!
ABOUT IOTA's QUBIC:
Qubic began life as as an initialism-turned-acronym, QBC, which stands for quorum-based computation. Specifically, Qubic is a protocol that specifies IOTA's solution for quorum-based computations, including such constructs as oracle machines, outsourced computations, and smart contracts. Qubic provides general-purpose, cloud- or fog-based, permissionless, multiprocessing capabilities on the Tangle. In the long term, Qubic will allow people to leverage world-wide unused computing capacity for a myriad of computational needs, all while helping to secure the IOTA Tangle: an IOTA-based world supercomputer.
