DLT-EDI (Distributed Ledger Tech) #8
EVENT DETAILS 18:00 REGISTRATION 18:15 - 18:20 WELCOME 18:20 - 18:30 Simon Montford (WEB3//IOT) Open Forum; members are invited to make announcements, share news, seek project collaborators, and request topics for future Meetups. 18:30 - 18:50 Keith Steele (IOTech/EdgeX) Keith will present EdgeX Foundry, an open source, vendor-neutral project hosted by The Linux Foundation and supporting a common IoT edge framework enabling an ecosystem of plug-and-play components that aims to unify the IOT Edge marketplace by making it easier for developers to build, deploy, run and scale IoT solutions for industrial, enterprise and consumer applications. 18:50 - 19.10 Michael McDonald / Selby Cary (Mantis) Michael and Selby of robotics startup, CST, will be speaking about the future integration of consumer robotics and IoT. CST have developed MANTIS, the world’s first autonomous wheel, that has modular and accessible features enabling future IoT access. Currently, CST are using MANTIS to secure perimeters of large sites by providing affordable, reliable and effective robotic surveillance vehicles. 19:10 - 19:30 Evangelo Pappas / Gabriele Cacciola (Ocyan) Evangelo will give a non-technical talk about new approaches to scaling throughput of blockchain networks.

What we're about

We only allow people to join our community who are interested in learning about how Distributed Ledger Technologies are being used to create an entirely new decentralised global world wide web. Innovators are welcome, but if you are only interested in get-rich-quick cypto schemes - please look elsewhere.

In order to vet who we allow to join, we ask all our members to reveal their full names, and request that they upload a clear profile photo. This is not only for membership vetting and security purposes, but also to facilitate community interaction.

Topics discussed by our guest speakers tend to be less about Fintech (crypto coins, financial regulation, and exchanges), and more about how DLTs are being used to build an entirely new decentralised web aka "Web 3.0" (IoT + AI + DLT). This new decentralised, autonomous machine web will run on many different, but interconnected, distributed ledgers - we don't think there will be one blockchain to rule them all.

This is why we are blockchain agnostic, and embrace innovation across the entire spectrum. We think every project that can demonstrate a genuine effort to build something amazing is worthy of support. Public/permissionless platforms such as Ethereum, Bitcoin, EOS, Cardano, IOTA, NEO, or private/permissioned platforms such as Hyperledger all have a hugely important contribution to make towards building a new and better open-source, decentralised, distributed world wide web.
