We’ve been busy and we want to update you on a major project milestone. Join members of Ocean Protocol’s core development team as they reveal exciting new features of Ocean Protocol Testnet v0.2 (Trilobite ) including capabilities for registering and exchanging digital assets, connecting a data marketplace to the network and the abstraction of modular service agreements into smart contracts. There will also be a special Ocean bounty announcement.
As always, refreshments and food are on us. Doors open at 6:45pm, we are starting at 7:00pm sharp.
Talk 1: Product Update
Executive Director Don Gossen shares what’s new at Ocean Protocol including the recent product release and the updated roadmap for network release.
Don has spent the better part of the last 15 years traveling the world wrangling data. It is his goal at Ocean Protocol Foundation to change the way in which people and companies manage and work with data. He has worked for some big names like Everis UK, NTT Data Corporation, and the Revere Group, primarily in Business Intelligence, Business Development, and Data Analytics roles. His work has taken him to London, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and Berlin. Don has a BSc in Computer Engineering from the University of Alberta.
Talk 2: Ocean Network
Troy McConaghy, Core Development Team Member will unpack Ocean Protocol’s Trilobite release and explain how you can connect a data marketplace to the network.
Troy has been working for BigchainDB and ascribe since 2015. Before that he was a virtual worlds developer, a rocket scientist, a physics major and a pig farmer.
Talk 3: Modular Service Agreements
Head of Research Dimi explains the abstraction of modular service agreements into smart contracts.
Dimi is a cross-domain protocol researcher. After finishing his PhD on micro-electronics and machine learning, he co-founded a series of blockchain startups: ascribe [power to creators] and BigchainDB [a blockchain database], and Ocean Protocol [a public network for data and AI marketplaces]. Currently, Dimitri is heading research at Ocean Protocol on public intelligence networks. He is also a co-chair of the W3C Interledger community, a blockchain interoperability protocol.
