Can't make it to the CIS opening party? Come join us in Santa Monica for an awesome happy hour and great conversation!
• What we'll do this week:
Patrick Stanley will give a lightning talk about Blockstack- a full-stack decentralized computing protocol that enables a new generation of applications where developers and users can interact fairly and securely while curing the ills of centralized Internet design. Blockstack builds protocols and developer tools designed to enable a fair and open Internet that returns digital rights to developers and consumers. Led by some of the world's foremost experts on distributed systems, Blockstack allows users to own their own data that they can take with them from app to app in the ecosystem, along with their Blockstack ID that eliminates the need for password-based logins. The end result is privacy, security, and freedom.
Alex Lee will then present Debut - a social networking app powered by Blockstack. It is a new era of social networking that freely share information amongst friends and families without compromise. Only you as the user have access to your data. You can dictate and take control of your data and have the ability to share public or private moments.
