About three years ago, developers came to a consensus on a standard API to represent anything with coin-like properties: the famous ERC-20 token:
https://github.com/ethereum/EIPs/blob/master/EIPS/eip-20.md

The power of interoperability resulted in a multitude of wallets, interfaces, and Dapps ranging from games to financial applications, that work with any ERC-20 token.

In this meetup we learn about two recent developments in the token space:

1. the Set protocol, a standard way for bundling tokens, that - together with other standards for trading (0xproject.com), loans (dharma.io), and compliance (abacusprotocol.com) can form a decentralized finance system

2. Token bonding curves: smart contracts that mint and burn tokens according to a predefined relationship between price and circulation, and can form a self-regulating market

Program:

18.00 Walk-in
18.30 Start presentations
21.00 Live tweets, talks and drinks

Note: the fine people of Set Protocol throw in some EUROs for pizzas! There will be coffee tea and water, and more fancy drinks for sale by the people from Thinking Hut. The fine people of Inblock.io have sponsored the meeting room cost, but you can leave a voluntary contribution to offset that a bit.
