• Zero-to-Dapp Virtual Workshop

    8 Cross St

    Calling on developers of all levels to try out a decentralized operating system! What is Blockstack? One metaphor we use is a "distributed operating system." Just like Linux, MacOS, or Windows handles all the complexity for apps running on your computer (e.g., writing data to hard disks, file permissions, isolation of apps from each other, etc.), Blockstack handles all the complexity for apps running on a decentralized internet. You can use the Blockstack programming framework to build a decentralized chat app like WhatsApp. Your app might actually be less complex than a centralized version because you don't need to run infrastructure or worry about user accounts or access-control for users. Blockstack already provides a lot of common building blocks and you can just focus on the logic of your specific app. We have spent the last year building our STACK Protocol and it includes a decentralized naming system called BNS, a decentralized routing network called ATLAS, and a decentralized cloud storage solution called Gaia. Gaia is compatible to AWS, Google Cloud, your local server, IPFS, Dropbox. Zero-to-Dapp Virtual Workshop Our core devs will be conducting a fun and interactive workshop. You will watch a tutorial and be able to ask any questions in real time. Here is the link to register http://community.blockstack.org/zero-march-2 **A few of us are getting together to watch the Virtual Workshop, and of course, getting some yummy pastries and cakes for breakfast. If you want to come to join us, please reply with a message and we will give you the details. We have limited spots, so if you can't come, pls do let us know early. You don't need to register online if you come to our meetup. You need to bring your windows laptop (this session is for Windows developers only).

  • Blockstack - the new Internet for decentralised apps (w Paypal & EthereumSG)

    This meetup is hosted in partnership with Paypal and Ethereum Singapore. Please register at the link below: https://www.meetup.com/Ethereum-Singapore/events/253237364/ Details Blockstack is a new internet for decentralized apps that you access through the Blockstack Browser. With Blockstack, there is a new world of apps that let you own your data and maintain your privacy, security and freedom. Blockstack uses the lower layers of the traditional internet and focuses on decentralizing the application layer. Blockstack provides key tools and infrastructure to developers enabling decentralized storage and decentralized authentication & identity. Developers build single-page applications in JavaScript then plug into user-run APIs, which eliminates centralized points of control. Users run decentralized apps through the Blockstack browser and give explicit read/write permissions to their data. Information is encrypted and stored on users’ personal devices. There are no middlemen, no passwords, and no massive data silos to breach. Get started by installing the Blockstack Browser (available for Mac, Windows, and Linux). There are many Blockstack apps already in production and more being built every day with the participation of the online open source community and in partnership with VC Bounties Programs. See more on that at blockstack.org/funding Please see more information at https://blockstack.org/about. Agenda: Decentralized Apps with Blockstack The future today - a look at real Blockstack apps The Blockstack technology stack overview Stacks - token to register identities & make payments About the Speaker: Larry Salibra is a technology entrepreneur who lives is South China. He is currently an Engineering Partner at Blockstack where he is building a new internet for decentralized apps. Previously, Larry Salibra was the Founder & CEO of Pay4Bugs, a crowdsourced pay per bug software testing platform. He is also a founding member of the Bitcoin Association of Hong Kong.

  • TechCircle + SUSS + Blockstack : Building a Secure, Smart Nation

    Blockstack is the new decentralized internet where user own their data and apps run locally without servers. This solves privacy and trust issues over our current system where data is centralized. In partnership with TechCircle and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), Blockstack is happy to announce that we will be having our first Blockstack meetup in Singapore ! Our night will be led by Larry Salibra, a technology entrepreneur who lives in South China and currently works as an Engineering Partner at Blockstack. He is also a founding member of the Bitcoin Association of Hong Kong. At this meetup, we will introduce Blockstack and walk you through creating your first decentralized app on Blockstack. We'll discuss: * What is Blockstack * Why we want to build decentralized apps * How to build our first Blockstack dapp * What decentralized apps you're building or want to see built. Bring your computer for a more engaging experience ! There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion. Our agenda at a glance: 18:30 - Doors open / Networking 18:55 - Opening speech by our VIP, David LEE Kuo Chuen, Professor of Fintech & Blockchain at SUSS 19:00 - Blockstack presentation by Larry Salibra 19:40 - Q&A 19:55 - Preview of some Blockstack dapps in App.co, the Universal Dapp Store 20:10 - Networking 20:30 - End We hope to see you guys -- technical and non-technical people are equally welcome :) Introductory video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SmC7AuZNWY&feature=youtu.be Interested attendee, please signup on this meetup page, then go to https://www.zeguestlist.sg/ticket_reg/?q=74915816E31304DF4DC26A306EE0FF21 to complete the registration. Seats are limited. You may fill up this form https://goo.gl/forms/WpJIYHmQkry6pyJs1 if you would like to be notified on the next meetup / event at TechCircle.
