Classic Cons in Cryptocurrency
Wolfgang Goerlich & Zachary Sarakun

Circle City Con 2018

Cryptocurrency brings with it a slew of new security concerns: 51% attacks, forks, and encryption busting quantum computing. This talk will explore the latest while providing background information on Blockchain and the inherent security controls it brings. That said, any technology is only as secure as the implementation. Moreover, every new technology gets adapted on the street to fit old crimes. Stolen wallets. Pyramid schemes. Confidence tricks and more. We'll compare and contrast the crimes that the news media hypes and the cons that criminals routinely run.
