How Mining Works

Aaron Cruz

Aaron will explain crypto mining Proof of Work using Ruby examples: the problems it solves, how it solves them. He will answer the question "Why are we using so much electricity mining crypto?".

Aaron manages a small mining farm in Austria and works on Elixir contracts. By the time of the conference, he will be working for a blockchain related startup building a usable layer on top of mostly Ethereum based projects.

In his former life, Aaron was a cook, a shepard and a cheese maker. He learned how to skateboard for his mid-life crisis (because he can't afford a Porche).
