Ethereum, the largest smart contract platform in the world, has no doubt been a leader in blockchain adoption. However, it still has a way to go until it achieves its full potential. With recent discussions surrounding ETH’s capacity constraint and the upcoming launch of ETH 2.0, the blockchain community wants to see breakthroughs.

Join us on Oct 8 as bloXroute Labs invites high profile ETH DApps to share their work and thoughts on the current and upcoming breakthroughs in the ETH ecosystem that will pave the way to a better blockchain.

Dapper Labs: Formed in February 2018, Dapper Labs mission is to make the world more open and trustworthy by introducing consumers to the value of blockchain technology through fun and games. Dapper Labs is the team behind CryptoKitties, one of the first and most successful blockchain applications outside of cryptocurrency, and Dapper, the world’s first publicly available smart wallet. Upcoming Dapper Labs projects include Cheeze Wizards, the world’s first blockchain-based battle royale, NBA Top Shot, a platform created in partnership with the NBA and NBPA, and Flow, a consumer-based blockchain for decentralized applications. With over $40M in financing, notable investors in Dapper Labs include Andreessen Horowitz, Union Square Ventures, Venrock, GV (formerly known as Google Ventures), and the founders of Dreamworks, Reddit, Coinbase, Zynga, and AngelList, among others.

Kyber Network: Kyber’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized token swaps to be integrated into any application, enabling value exchange to be performed seamlessly between all parties in the ecosystem. Using this protocol, developers can build innovative payment flows and applications, including instant token swap services, ERC20 payments, and financial DApps — helping to build a world where any token is usable anywhere.

OpenSea: Founded in November 2017, OpenSea is proud to remain the largest general marketplace for crypto collectibles, with the broadest set of categories (120 and growing), the most items (over 3 million), and the best prices. We’re doing this through a community of passionate users and developers. We partner with game developers to create customizable storefronts for users to automatically buy and sell their crypto collectibles. A core part of our vision is that open protocols like Ethereum and interoperable standards like ERC721 and ERC1155 will enable vibrant new economies where users truly own their digital items. We think open, liquid marketplaces will help power these new economies. As such, we're building tools that allow any developer to build rich, integrated marketplaces for their digital assets." see

AlphaWallet: AlphaWallet is founded by blockchain geeks and business professionals who believe blockchain technology will have a massive impact on the future and change the landscape of technology in general. We strive to make this vision a reality by providing an easy-to-use platform which makes the technology available for anyone. We believe blockchain technology will make integration between service providers seamless on the consumer end by creating open and audit-able tokens and systems.

MYKEY Lab: MYKEY( is a self-sovereign identity system implemented on multiple public blockchains, which is also the first implementation based on the KEYID protocol. There are three issues that leads blockchain can not be mass adoption, key management, hard to use, expensive. This topic will demonstrate how MYKEY help blockchain applications becomes much easier for end-users.

bloXroute Labs: bloXroute is a leading venture-backed technology startup founded by crypto researchers and software veterans from Northwestern University. bloXroute has developed a BDN that scales blockchains to 1000’s of transactions per second by propagating blocks faster. To achieve this advanced scalability, the BDN uses advanced networking techniques such as internal caching, encryption, and cut-through routing. The network is provably neutral and requires no protocol changes or compromises to security or decentralization. The BDN operates underneath the blockchain at Layer 0, so it is compatible with Layer 1 and Layer 2 solutions and PoS, PoW, and hybrid frameworks. bloXroute is releasing Version 1 of the BDN in Q3 2019 with BTC, BCH, and ETH integration. All blockchain projects can use bloXroute with its open API.
