Don’t miss this good opportunity to learn about blockchain and cryptocurrencies from some of the most prominent projects in the space!

Agenda & Description:

7 pm: Kyber Network
Kyber’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized token swaps to be integrated into any application, enabling value exchange to be performed seamlessly between all parties in the ecosystem. Using this protocol, developers can build innovative payment flows and applications, including instant token swap services, ERC20 payments, and financial DApps — helping to build a world where any token is usable anywhere.

7.30 pm: MakerDAO
MakerDAO is a decentralized organization dedicated to bringing stability to the crypto economy. Maker issues Dai, the world’s first decentralized stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain. Dai eliminates volatility through an autonomous system of smart contracts, specifically designed to respond to market dynamics. Launched in 2017, Dai has successfully maintained a soft peg to the US Dollar. With a presence on numerous cryptocurrency exchanges, multiple partnerships with global supply chain companies, and agreements with organizations serving non-government agencies, Maker is unlocking the power of the blockchain to deliver on the promise of economic empowerment today.

8 pm: Set
Set is working on infrastructure around a collateralized baskets of tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. Sets allow users to group together different tokens and synthesize them into a single higher-order token that represents its underlying parts in a decentralized, trustless manner using smart contracts. With Sets:
Anyone can construct and exchange complex financial instruments such as market indices, index funds, or ETFs.
Decentralized application developers can present higher-level abstractions and help users save gas and trading fees.

Set provides a complete toolkit to get started with building businesses utilizing tokenized baskets including: decentralized brokerages, robo-advisors, and issuance order bulletin boards. We provide the protocols, developer libraries, and sample dApps to get you started in minutes.

8.30 pm : Status
Status is a new kind of tool, for a new kind of Internet. Currently in development, it is an open source, Ethereum-based app that gives users the power to chat, transact, and access a revolutionary world of DApps on the decentralized web. Status strives to be a secure communication tool that upholds human rights. With the high level goals of preserving the right to privacy and promoting economic trade in a transparent, open manner, Status is building a community where anyone is welcome to join and contribute.
