Videos from the Cloud Identity Summit

Blockchain technology holds the promise of unlocking tens of billions of dollars of value annually. Some have proposed the use of blockchain for identity applications. However, there are a number of issues with the technology that are still being resolved. The Swirlds hashgraph is a radically different approach to distributed consensus. This hashgraph can resolve scaling and security issues, while providing new abilities that enable new applications of distributed consensus. This talk will compare blockchain and hashgraph, and describe the implications for identity, and beyond.

This class will go in depth on what the Swirlds hashgraph system is, and how it works. It will walk you through how to download the SDK, how to write simple apps using it, and how to use some of the features it provides. This will include a step-by-step walkthrough of writing a simple Swirlds app based on the hashgraph, from start to finish.
