Blockchain technology offers a fundamentally new way to build software that has the potential to change the way organisations, government and society operate. The Blockchain (now an umbrella term that includes a number of technologies/concepts including smart contracts, Initial Coin Offerings, Security Tokens, Distributed Ledger Technologies) gives us a way to build new “decentralised” software systems and organisations.

Techweek event - How to earn rewards with blockchain

Mining or trading are not the only ways to make money in the blockchain economy. Want a safe way to create great return on your token investment? - Consider staking. Buying tokens in the lower price and selling them when the price rises is not the only way to make profit in crypto space. Moreover, people shy away from trading today because of volatile and fluctuating market. The other popular way is to become a miner in a Proof of Work blockchain network. But due to low cryptocurrency prices it becomes more and more challenging to make profit between advancing hardware and intense power consumption. So many miners decide to switch off their rigs and look for alternative ways to make money within the crypto industry. What’s the other way? The attraction for staking is growing because it takes very little effort to set up and allows users to earn a passive income. At this meetup Ruitao Su, CTO of Centrality, will explain why businesses are switching to Proof of Stake, showcase how Centrality has implemented this in the upcoming CENNZnet launch and demonstrate how to rUN your own node and stake tokens to earn rewards. Event details: Date: 22 May at 5.30pm Location: Centrality office, Ground floor, 5/48 Emily place Please RSVP and grab a ticket via the official link https://techweek.co.nz/whats-on/2019/how-to-earn-rewards-387/ This event is brought to you by Centrality as part of the Techweek with support from BlockchainNZ.
