Decred x BlueYard Berlin Meetup: Currencies, core-chains & the future of blockchain governance and development Tickets, Wed 18 Jul 2018 at 18:30 | Eventbrite
Decred is an autonomous digital currency with built in on-chain governance, running on a hybrid Proof-of-Stake and Proof-of-Work architecture. Read more about our investment thesis here.
We are happy to be able to help Decred with building their community of developers and both PoW and PoS miners across the world — so we are excited to host the first Decred meetup in Berlin, with folks from all across Europe. Jonathan Zeppettini will join us to talk about:
What Decred is and how it is different from other crypto currencies
How Decred will evolve in the future
How to get involved; be it through developing, mining or participating in the governance process
An interesting aspect of Decred is that a part of the block reward is set aside to fund the development of Decred. In the future all spending out of this pool will be governed by Decred’s stakeholders. We will dive deeper into the specific mechanics of Decred’s system and also chat generally about why developer incentivization and project governance are important properties by featuring a conversation between JZ and Ele from oscoin (moving the open source ecosystem onto the blockchain). Roughly our agenda for the evening will look like this:
6:30pm — 7:00pm: doors open + pizza and drinks
7:00pm — 7:30pm: JZ’s talk about Decred + Q&A
7:30pm — 8:00pm: conversation between Ele and JZ on developer incentivization and project governance
8:00pm — 8:15pm: open Q&A
8:15pm — 9:30pm: mingle with more pizza and drinks
We look forward to seeing you!
