Blockchain & cryptocurrencies have never been more top of mind, but how are hackers breaking blockchains? Why are governments banning cryptocurrencies on security grounds?
Blockchain & cryptocurrencies are peaking in today's hype cycle because of their supposed security. And yet, if you look more closely at the news you'll see case after case of cryptocurrency heists, blockchain security breaches, & other distributed ledger insecurities.
How are hackers breaking blockchains? Why are distributed ledgers not impenetrable? What are the risks of an increasing reliance on the coders who may one day control global value transfers?
