Interesting information. The downside is that they created a lot of "proprietary" technology that you would likely have to go all-in on. Anyway there is some good learning to take away from the presentation.

Thanks +Jakob Jenkov! I should take a closer look... As surprising it may sound, bitcoin draws a lot of attention from banking industry here in Brazil, because variations of it may be used inside their infrastructure in order to decentralize processing. Now this is a new element coming to game.
