About the talk
Blockchain systems are complex combinations of technological, economic and social components that rely on and are used by stakeholders from different geographies and backgrounds. These systems are not isolated from the real world and unexpected threats may emerge from this dynamic interaction. Cardano stakeholders need a resilient system that is able to identify and grade developing threats to its own existence. In this challenge, we invited participants to create a simple mechanism for identifying novel, emerging systemic threats to the Cardano ecosystem.
