Ever wonder what the hell Ripple is and what it does?
Well, thankfully, we have 2 local experts right here in Vancity and both will be at Decentral this Tuesday to answer:
-what is Ripple?
-what does Ripple do?
-how does Ripple do what it does?
-and why is Ripple worth investigating?
Piotr Piasecki - Piotr wrote his Masters Thesis on Bitcoin, is a moderator of the Bitcoin subreddit and is a local expert on (and collector of) Casascius Physical Bitcoins. Piotr has been partnering with David Lowy on many financial technology ventures - with their latest one involving Ripple.
David Lowy - David has been in Bitcoin since the very beginning, was once the owner of the bitcoin.com domain (he sold for a tidy profit) and he has his fingers in many pies in Vancouver's financial technology sector. David just took delivery of a Lamassu Bitcoin ATM - and with more on the way - he will soon be deploying them in locations across the Lower Mainland.
This is not an evening to miss.
Ripple is one area in FinTech we all need more information on and a clearer understanding of.
Active and open dialogue to follow the presentation.
