** Aspasia Beneti**
Gaming brought me to programming since a young girl. I have tried quite some programming languages, most of my early professional life I was a Java dev, but the past few years I have happily settled for Clojure. I am a freelancer dev and agile consultant. My main project these days is leading the development of the Freecoin toolkit at Dyne.org
============ Our talks ============
**Transparent value sharing with Freecoin**
Freecoin is a set of tools initially designed to let communities run reward schemes that are transparent and auditable. It is the design outcome of European funded social projects we have participated in with Dyne.org, currently Commonfare http://pieproject.eu/. It comprises of an electronic wallet and other side products which are designed to be generic and they can facilitate multiple blockchain connectivity, offline transactions, identity management and multi-signature authentication. The toolkit is written in Clojure and I will explain the modules we have developed, the difficulties we are facing and the lessons we learned so far.
