This week, we are reading about off-chain payments. This payment network – Visa – is so off-chain that is doesn't use a chain at all!
We're reading two blog posts about Visa's go-to-market campaign and current business by a pseudonymous financial blogger:
Part one: http://minesafetydisclosures.com/blog/2019/5/29/part-l-a-history-of-visa
Part two: https://minesafetydisclosures.com/blog/2019/7/23/part-ll-an-overview-of-visa
Visa's story has it all: technological breakthroughs, an airdrop, scaling challenges, and a big meeting to figure out consensus.
We will talk about Visa's go-to-market strategy and lessons that aspiring peer-to-peer payment networks can learn from it.
Bring your lunch, questions and comments to Crypto NYC, where we'll talk through it together.
All levels of experience are welcome. No coding required. We're here to learn from each other!
