Smart Contract Platforms vs. The Internet Computer

Smart Contract Platforms vs. The Internet Computer: Differentiating Ethereum and DFINITY

The event description:

DFINITY is a decentralized replacement for the existing web hosting stack. It rests upon a new blockchain computer that is similar in concept to Ethereum but has fewer performance restrictions, WebAssembly support, and will ultimately have unlimited capacity. Software systems and business applications running on this computer will be unstoppable and won’t need to employ complex components such as databases or backup and restore systems. This will allow business IT costs to be cut by up to 75% through the reduction of support staff needs.

DFINITY combines the flexibility of cloud hosting with the power of a public blockchain platform and is designed to outperform both in speed and cost in most applications. DFINITY will launch this year.

About the Speaker:
Arthur Falls is a leading blockchain industry observer and producer of three popular blockchain centric podcasts: Beyond Bitcoin (2014), The Ether Review (2015 – 2017), and The Third Web (2017 – present). Prior to joining DFINITY, he worked at ConsenSys where he implemented the initial content marketing strategy.
