Topic:

Factom: Using the Bitcoin Blockchain to Enable Internet of Things, and Ensure Privacy and Security

The Factom protocol creates a general purpose data layer over Bitcoin.  The Bitcoin Blockchain is the most secure distributed and ordered ledger in the world.  Factom uses this ledger to allow the creation of lists, and allows the adding of data to these lists.  This architecture allows the building of state for the Internet of things to build more secure, more private, yet more powerful smart devices.  This talk will explain how these objectives can be met with Factom.
