FEATURED SPEAKERS: HU-MANITY.CO: Founders Richie Etwaru, who is also author of the bestselling book “Blockchain: Trust Companies”, and Michael DePalma will introduce, a New Jersey based company which is declaring a decentralized human right: “Everyone has the right to legal ownership of their inherent human data as property” and is using the Blockchain to acknowledge, verify and protect. Learn how our inherent human data is bought & sold in a human data marketplace without being respected as our property and about the transformative power of #my31. BLOCKSTACK: As the Production Partner at Blockstack, Xan Ditkoff is on the front lines of decentralized application development. With a background in private equity, investment banking, and the military, Xan is passionate about driving the creation, growth, and expansion of application ecosystems through his role with Blockstack PBC and with the Signature Fund. Blockstack was founded by two Princeton graduates and raised $50 million through an ICO partially funded by the Winklevos brothers and Fred Wilson’s Union Square Ventures. Its mission is to build an ecosystem that gives users control over their fundamental digital rights: Identity, data-ownership, privacy, and security. Join us and help build the new internet. Learn about what Blockstack set out to do, how its grown since the ICO and how it will disrupt legacy technologies and advance the new paradigm with the help of its Signature Fund.
