What is UNLV Blockchain Day?

UNLV Computer Science Department is offering a Blockchain course in Spring 2019. This course covers a variety of blockchain topics such as cryptography behind blockchain, consensus algorithms, smart contract, blockchain security, and scalability issues, as well as case studies on Ethereum and Hyperledger, and talks from industry experts. Students will build decentralized applications as a class project on public and private blockchains.

UNLV Blockchain Day will be a culmination of the semester’s work. Students will showcase their projects through posters, presentations, and live demonstrations. This event will be enriched with keynote speeches, blockchain tutorials, forums, and sponsor talks. We would like to bring the community together to this event. Participants will get to see the blockchain applications built by students, meet other fellow blockchain developers and business personnel in town, and discuss how to bring this exciting technology to their businesses. Lunch and refreshments will be served.
