Amy Yin, Coinbase engineer, on extended public keys


Node presents the fourth of our weekly crypto events - AMY YIN software engineer at Coinbase. And beats from our in-house DJ William Newton!

BIP-32 and BIP-44 introduce Hierarchical Deterministic wallets in Bitcoin, which allow address generation without a private key by using Extended Public Keys. Separating the ability to receive and the ability to send opens up the world of online commerce with digital currencies. Amy will talk about leveraging extended public keys to build peer-to-peer online payment processors for Ethereum, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin. Intermediate knowledge of cryptocurrencies recommended.

Amy has been a software engineer at Coinbase since summer 2017. She joined Coinbase because of the possibilities that digital currencies open up for a world economy and borderless payments. Before Coinbase she was at Facebook's Internet.org and Hired.com and graduated from Harvard with a degree in Computer Science. In her free time she teaches a weekly Girls Who Code class and loves yoga, weight lifting and her book clubs.

Doors open at 8:00pm; talk starts at 9.00pm.

Drinks will be provided and additional wine can be enjoyed at Maritime below Node.
