SkyLedger Dubai 2018

The Fairmont Palm Hotel & Resort, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai

SkyLedger is a third-generation blockchain platform invented by early developers working on Bitcoin and Ethereum. SkyLedger is built to fulfill Satoshi Nakamoto’s original vision and to solve the problems with the existing blockchains. The platform is secure, scalable and independent of internet service providers.

SkyLedger uses Obelisk, a new distributed consensus algorithm which is based on proof-of-trust. Proof-of-trust mitigates security issues and centralisation problems arising from the Proof-of-Work and Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithms and mining processes. Because it does not rely on mining, the blockchain is genuinely decentralised, 51% attack proof and fast. As SkyLedger transactions do not require a fee, no coins are spent on confirming the transaction. Instead, users receive coin-hours for holding their tokens, coin-hours can be spent to confirm transactions.

These features make the SkyLedger a strong competitor to credit cards and financial services such as AliPay and Apple Pay and allow for an unlimited number of transactions per second. This is unlike other leading blockchains where transactions can take hours or minutes. SkyLedger has no block size limits and can be adapted to any transaction rate.

Each token built on SkyLedger has its own blockchain. The platform provides independent data storage for each token to ensure that their value develops independently of each other. Skyledger is energy efficient and environmentally sustainable.

The Dubai SkyLedger 2018 conference will take place over two days. The first day will provide an insight into this ground-breaking technology and some of the projects within the SkyLedger ecosystem. The second day is specifically designed for developers interested in building solutions on the SkyLedger platform.
