This meetup is made possible thanks to our sponsors: eToro (https://www.etoro.com/), the Centre for Cryptocurrency Research and Engineering at Imperial College (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/cryptocurrency), CryptoCompare.com (https://www.cryptocompare.com/), The Blockchain Connector (https://www.theblockchainconnector.com/) and Slock.it (https://slock.it/)
SPEAKER LINE UP
We finish the year with a very technical line up in this edition of the original Ethereum Meetup - three speakers, no self-promotion allowed, technology focused talks all in the space of just 2 hours. The meetup will be filmed (but not livestreamed) and all videos will be released on Stephan Tual's Youtube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/ursium) roughly 3 weeks after the event.
Vaughn McKenzie - Jaak.io (https://jaak.io/)
JAAK connects songs, films, and TV shows directly to the artists, producers, writers, and organisations that create, own and distribute them.
JAAK's creators believe in a simpler framework for licensing media on the web that will unlock a world of new content experiences and untapped value opportunities for the entire media industry - they call it 'Smart Content.
Thomas Bertani - Oraclize.it (http://www.oraclize.it/)
Smart contracts live like in a walled garden, they cannot fetch external data on their own. Oraclize is here to help, acting as a data carrier, a reliable connection between Web APIs and your Dapp. There is no need to open additional trustlines as our good behaviour is enforced by cryptographic proofs.
Raphael Mazet - Alice.si (https://alice.si/)
Raphael comes back to the meetup to present us with an update on Alice.si - When you give to a charity on Alice, you can track whether it achieves its goals. In fact, you only pay if it does. This level of transparency is possible thanks to blockchain technology.
18:25: Queue downstairs opens in two lines: RSVPs and waiting list. If there are RSVPs no-shows by the time the doors close, the waiting list members will be allowed in on a first come first serve basis.
Note: Everyone is required to stay outside the lecture room until hushered in by our intrepid volunteers - no exception. If you suffer from a disability please let our staff know in advance so we can take the appropriate measures to host you.
