Presentation Part 1
An Ethereum & Holochain Comparison & Why both Technologies are Important Step Changes
Web3 is exploding in all directions and new development paradigms are emerging.
Holochain is pioneering the agent centric paradigm. In this talk we will cover the scope of Bitcoin and Ethereum and the problems they solved and the problems Holochain are out to solve and why they both complement each other.
We will introduce you to the difference between “Agent Centric” and “Data Centric” and how we might just live in a world where the computer doesn’t say “No” as in this Little Britain Episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJQ3TM-p2QI

Presentation Part 2
Current Thought Leadership (IMHO) on Blockchain & Securities
When is a cryptocurrency a security? And, when is a CPU state-change a security?

In this discussion, we will explore the:
Issuing;
Trading; and
International Passporting;
of securities.

What Old Skool regulation can be stretched to fit the new?... !

Some suggested structures for issuing securities:
Debenture Mortgage Tokens (DMT’s); and
Managed Investment Schemes.

How about trading? The evolution of concepts:
ICO, ITO, ETO

International passporting:
Our American friends; and the reach of Reg S, Reg D and Reg A+;
Zug and the Islands, maybe even Eastern Europe?; and
Australia.

Legally defining:
SmartContract; and
RegTech- Legislation as an oracle?..!
