Cryptocurrency: Exploring the Potential

  • Zapproved 1414 Northwest Northrup Street #700 Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

The cryptocurrency bear market of 2018 saw both Ethereum and Bitcoin tokens lose more than 80% of their peak value, but that doesn’t mean development has slowed. Ignoring the market and speculation of crypto tokens, let's explore how these crypto tokens, notably Ethereum, have improved! Join Scott Bigelow, VP of Engineering at Amberdata (a blockchain data company) in an interactive exploration. He’ll share what cryptocurrencies, like Ethereum, are capable above, aside from being bought, sold, and transferred. This session will discuss topics such as "stable" coins, cross-chain bridges, games, hardware wallets, and more.
