Sentinel Protocol’s John Kirch & DFINITY’s Arthur Falls


Blockchain’s core technology is secure by design. However, many dApps and connected applications are insecure. This has resulted in numerous incidents as reported in the press about crypto organisations getting hacked and crypto users being victimised by scams. John Kirch will explain about how their cyber security intelligence platform can enable organisations and individuals to overcome the disadvantages of decentralisation.
John has over 25 years of international experience working in Asia’s high-technology industry with several leading technology companies including: Darktrace, WatchGuard Technologies, Penta Security Systems and Softbank. John has an undergraduate degree from Duke University in North Carolina and studied computer science at U.C. Berkeley.
It’s over a year since DFINITY’s chief scientist Dominic Williams presented his team’s early vision for their network.We’re excited to welcome director of communications, Arthur Falls to give us an update on their progress. DFINITY takes the lessons learned from nine years of blockchain technology development and combines that with a product strategy informed by tech macro-trends. The result is a decentralised computing platform designed to align the interests of commodity hardware manufacturers, enterprise users, and the general public. DFINITY is a protocol to enable the open internet to compete with platforms like Google and Amazon for authorship of the future history of the web.
