2021-10-20 Blockchain Nights # 017
Joint event with the Austrian Blockchain Center in Vienna: This blockchain talk kickstarts our ongoing cooperation between the Blockchain Nights and ABC talks.
Topic: Crypto-Payment Privacy: Anonymisation, Deanonymisation
Cryptocurrency payments face a tension between regulators striving to eliminate anonymity due to fear of money laundering and users who wish to preserve their privacy as they legitimately can with cash payments.
In this joint event, our experts will discuss
- why to build and to use a wallet with built-in CoinJoin mixing,
- what effects privacy wallets are having on the blockchain,
- and how privacy and accountability may still be compatible in a privacy-by-default, revoked-by-consensus world.
Hybrid event: online and in two locations: Berlin
