An intro to cryptography in Ethereum

Thursday 20 July, 16:00 - 17:00

A basic introdusction to the Ethereum blockchain and the solidity programming language and how Ethereum uses cryptography.

The session will start with a basic introduction to the Ethereum network and how the Solidity programming language is used to manipulate state.
We will then discuss basic cryptographic concepts like elliptical curves and how Ethereum leverages that to generate public and private keys.
Next we will discuss privacy in Ethereum and go through a working solidity example of a Merkle tree.
