Event outline:

The web as we know it has proven to be reminiscent of Pandora's Box. An unprecedented experiment of human faith with outcomes we had yet to discover. The discussions on privacy, security, trust, personal data and governance are becoming fiercer by the day. The loudest critics believe the foundations of the internet were flawed to begin with.

But things are changing.

Cryptographers, protocol designers and distributed systems engineers have been doing R&D for decades on how computer science could liberate our world, the web and financial systems. With the inception of Bitcoin and Ethereum a larger part of the world is witnessing the first steps into a decentralised world.

What are the next steps? Which teams are working on the cutting edge of blockchain and distributed ledger technology and are solving unprecedented challenges in the field of cryptography, consensus mechanisms, protocol design, scalability, security and on-chain governance?

During this event we will witness technical showcases from CTO's or technical leads from several different projects. After each showcase there is room for a Q&A. There will be enough time for socializing and one on ones with the projects. And yes, there is plenty of food available.
