An initiative by The Alliance of Guangzhou International Sister-City Universities (GISU).
Dr. Bastieri is a Professor in General Physics at the University of Padova and a world renown expert in the fields of computing, astrophysics and physics.

The resilience showed over the years by the bitcoin infrastructure, both to individual and organized hacking attacks, may well distill from just one basic requirement -immutability in which nothing can be changed or modified.
Immutability is in fact one of the main preconditions in creating a working blockchain where the underlying framework of bitcoins exist and thrive.
Following a brief introduction to blockchains, this presentation will focus on:
- Immutability - how to obtain it in a blockchain.
- Requirements – the minimal hardware and software requirements resilient to attacks.
- Application – protecting internal data of customers and proprietary information.
- Case studies – specific prevention examples
Emphasis will be placed on demonstrating how blockchains can prove invaluable in creating safe database technology which can be best leveraged in industries, companies and corporations.
The Alliance of Guangzhou International Sister-City Universities (GISU) is proud to introduce the first two of many planned online professional development programs for its new Digital and Entrepreneurship Academy. These two programs are initially offered free of charge to the students of our Alliance members, industry representatives and alumni each member university might choose to invite.
Supported by the People’s Government of the Guangzhou Municipality, the mission of the Alliance of Guangzhou International Sister-City Universities is to attract and leverage the academic resources of its members in close collaboration for the sustainable development of our cities. GISU’s current 13 member universities represent 12 countries and a total population of over 34 million people in the sister cities. With a combined student enrollment of almost 400,000 and 36,000 faculty and administrative staff, GISU’s great diversity of academic programs and research capacity represent the best of the world.
