Ina Salihović

Imagine divisions of a Byzantine army, attacking a completely encircled city. To proceed, the generals of each division, who are dispersed around the city’s periphery, must agree on a battle plan. However, while some generals want to attack, others may want to retreat. How to ensure they win by attacking at the same time, even if the central command is impossible and they know at least one of the generals is a traitor? Take a look at how this problem affected the rise of Blockchain, learn the basic concepts behind one of the world’s most promising technologies, and see how this technology may affect future cities and the power grid.
