After familiarizing myself with blockchain over the past couple years, I noticed a few caveats and setbacks that make blockchain a ‘not-so-ideal’ solution to record tracking in a P2P network. It’s not as scalable and it’s quite slow in a busy network. Enter Apache Kafka, with its high performance and immutable logging. In this talk, I want to explore the relationship between Blockchain and Kafka and demonstrate how the two technologies can benefit from each other. If you’re interested in the future of blockchain and love Kafka, this is definitely up your alley.
