I was unable to capture the audio from my talk, but last Friday, I spoke at the 2019 Joint Mathematics Meetings on the Mathematics in the Realm of Cyber Research research track. There, I spoke about an application of blockchain we had here for using blockchain to supplement the domain name service system. You can see my slides below:

All holders of the database possess the entire database and can verify it by verifying the historical cryptographic hashes.
