Looking Beyond Ethereum


Smart contract blockchain platforms first appeared in the form of Ethereum in 2014. Since then, there has been a whole generation of newcomers all touting faster speeds and novel consensus algorithms. At this meetup, we’ll take a look at some newer ones and see how it compares to Ethereum and best practice design principles. Experienced blockchain technology focused developers and entreprenuers will compare and contrast the features of 3 platforms, namely Ethereum, iOST and Klaytn.
