The club had its first Open Discussion of the semester on 11/14. Ryan Stirling moderated the discussions centred around Bitcoin Scaling.
Block propagation time, its relation to the block size and to the incentives for a miner, adversarial model, etc. were a few among several other related topics discussed among a room full of attendees. The full minutes of the meeting can be read at this link.
We hope to have more open discussions and presentations in the coming weeks. Our meetings are always open to the public; every Tuesday, 8 PM, at 5-217. Hope to see you at the next meeting.
