Talk 1: Elliptic curve and what was achieved before blockchain
Ask yourself, which of the following are unique to blockchain? a) Non-repudiation (undeniable proof); b) authenticity (only the owner can move the money. c) data immutability (data can be verified against changes). The answer is none of them. Before blockchain was invented, all these had been achieved by cryptography technologies like Elliptic Curve Cryptography, which is the foundation of today's blockchain. To bask in the glory of Jesus we must first be baptised by John the forerunner. Without knowing cryptography we can't know blockchain.
