## Description
The emergence of the blockchain technologies created a fertile ground for decentralized applications in the economy.

During the last months, we are seeing born several projects like Decentralized Organizations, Decentralized Stable Coins, and Decentralized Marketplaces that can be the platform for a new economy.

In this meetup, we will know more about this topic, from Decentralized Finances to decentralized Marketplaces.

Hugo Sánchez, Blockchain developer and member of Ethereum's Cat Herders team, will introduce us to the emerging Decentralized Finances and the economy behind MakerDAO and its stable coin DAI.

After this introduction, Austin Virts, Head of Marketing at Origin Protocol, will show us, remotely, the new developments of the decentralized marketplace Origin and will do a ETH giveaway to the attendees allowing them to convert it to DAI and purchase a shirt on the Origin Marketplace.
