After the Ethereum hard fork on July 20, we now have two chains, Ethereum and Ethereum Classic. Join us Sunday as industry experts discuss the value of network effects vs diversity, and how future forks might be handled and supported.

We will open with special guest Tim Swanson, Director of Market Research at R3 (http://r3cev.com/). Tim will speak to us on the ideas behind Code is Not Law.

The talk will be followed by a panel discussion. Panelists include:

Charlie Lee, Director of Engineering at Coinbase (http://coinbase.com)

Shawn O'Connor, Entrepreneur and Investor

Jesse Powell, CEO of Kraken (https://www.kraken.com/)

Matthieu Riou, CTO of BlockCypher (http://blockcypher.com)

Dominic Williams, co-founder of String Labs (http://string.technology)

The discussion will be moderated by world-renowned economist Steve Waldman (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Randy_Waldman).
