## Description
RSK is a smart-contract peer-to-peer platform built on top of the Bitcoin blockchain using some innovations like merge-mining. Its goal is to add value and functionality to the core Bitcoin network by the implementation of smart contracts as a Layer 2 solution.

In this Meetup, Diego Gutiérrez, CEO of RSK, will talk about RSK and the RSK Infrastructure Framework Open Standard (RIF OS), a set of open and decentralized infrastructure protocols that allow faster, easier and more scalable development of distributed applications (dApps) within a unified environment.

RIF OS allows developers to access a set of decentralized infrastructure protocols to create scalable distributed applications (dApps) within a unified environment that helps accelerate time to market. By providing broad interoperability and faster implementation time, RIF OS aims to close the gap between blockchain technologies and their mass adoption in the market.

We will discover other projects like the RSK Name Service (identification of RSK addresses by human-readable names, in the same way, that Ethereum Name Services do) and discuss the RSK roadmap including stablecoins, Decentralized finances and other initiatives on the top of this smart-contracts platform.

This meetup is a unique oportunity to meet one of the most prominent blockchain pioneers in Latin America and the World, don't miss it!
