Bitcoin Scaling Conference In Milan Highlights Collaborative Initiatives
There is no shortage of ideas about how to meet the bitcoin scaling challenge. More importantly, however, is the willingness of the community to share its ideas and work on ways to bring them to fruition. This much was obvious from this weekend’s Scaling Bitcoin ‘Retarget’ conference held at the Politecnico di Milano Piazza Leonardo da Vinci in Milan, Italy.
This year’s two-day conference, designed to present solutions to the scalability challenge, featured a host of speakers and drew an enthusiastic attendance. The conference provided a venue where developers, miners and researchers can conference about bitcoin development.
The presentations were videotaped and are posted on the conference website, along with presentation transcripts. The postings mark an improved level of cooperation in the bitcoin community since last year’s Montreal conference.
Topics this year included improving bitcoin throughput; security and privacy; layer 2 ideas (such as payment channels); fee structures and incentives; network resilience; testing modeling and simulation; anti-spam measures; mining concerns; block size proposals; and community coordination.
