Hedera Hashgraph – The future of blockchain (An IITPSA KZN Chapter Event)

November 14, 2018 @ 18:00 - 20:00


The Hedera Hashgraph platform provides a new form of distributed consensus. A way for people who don’t know or trust each other to securely collaborate and transact online without the need for a trusted intermediary. The platform is lightning fast, fair, and secure and, unlike some blockchain-based platforms, doesn’t require compute-heavy proof-of-work. Hedera enables and empowers developers to build an entirely new class of decentralized applications that were never before possible. This event is a joint effort between the Hashgraph community and the IITPSA.




  1. A brief ten minute talk on the IITPSA and the benefits of joining the organization.
  2. Mark Pape, a local Hashgraph ambassador will introduce Hashgraph and briefly explain the technology and benefits.
  3. Jordan Fried, Hedera’s SVP of Global Business Development will be virtually presenting updates about the Hedera public ledger and a recap of the Hedera18 Developer conference.
