- Web3 Scalability & Interoperability UX Singapore w/ Polkadot & imToken
Description Scaling is one of the biggest questions in the blockchain space. We invited the Polkadot team to present their solution - The Polkadot network of blockchains and the Substrate blockchain-building framework. Once blockchains are scalable, how does it impact user experience? Can we hide blockchain complexity completely? imToken will reflect on layer 2 UX and share inspirations on how we will interact with the chain in the coming years. If this tickles your brain cells, join in on the discussion this Friday night! Drinks and snacks will be provided at the venue!

- What will be the “Cambrian Explosion” of Crypto User Adoption be?
Inside The Road To Adoption event our two keynote speakers will put forward the case that user experience and stable cryptocurrencies are core to the fast approaching mass adoption. This event is for those looking to learn more about what is going to happen in crypto next. Our first speaker brings specific examples from 7500+ customer interactions and interviews. Rossco Paddison will share the four core blocks to crypto user adoption from a users perspective. Singlehandedly Rossco trained thousands and thousands of new users how to get started with crypto, seeing their frustration, concerns and even tears when it comes to cryptocurrency adoption. In his talk he will share practical takeaways about what users really want. Our second speaker will provokingly address why we still can’t use cryptocurrencies as cash yet. Tom Howard has advised numerous crypto startups and co-founded an angel investment group. Tom will show you the exacting currency method that will pivot the entire crypto industry. Addressing the elephant in the room for the crypto community; price volatility makes crypto unusable. In an interesting twist, Tom will show how crypto-backed currencies like $DAI from MakerDAO will ultimately win the communities hearts and wallets. Following our two enticing keynotes will be an extraordinary panel discussing four key areas: 1. What will be the user adoption experiences that will cause a “leapfrog event” leaving many startups in ruins? 2. What role does user privacy play in adoption? And can transparency and anonymity live harmoniously together? 3. How will crypto synthetic stocks, equities and shares evolve? 4. What is stability? Physical asset backing versus crypto-backed assets, which will triumph? Joining our strategically selected panel is: - Shaun Djie, Co-Founder & COO of Digix - David Johnston, Managing Director, YGC - Joe Tusin, CoFounder & CEO, Chynge - Tom Howard, Co-Founder & CSO of depfi - (Moderator) Rossco Paddison, CEO & CoFounder of depfi As you can see we’ve crafted an exceptional event for your attending pleasure.
