BLOCKCHAIN PANEL

By CMU Summit and Alpha Startups

Carnegie Mellon is known for its advances in Computer Science. Blockchain, at its core, is a computer science architecture: an immutable, unhackable distributed database of digital assets.

However, it is not just a distributed database: it moves money; it stores money; it lends money; it trades money; it attests to money; it accounts for money; it formalizes trust and consensus with mathematics and smart contracts; it protects copyrights and patents with fast identity authentication; it connects to big data to build statistical models to monitor transaction behaviors; its potential applications are endless and potent.

Therefore, the question is simple: How should we act in the Age of Blockchain?
