BUIDL meetup #1
We will kick off our first meetup with 3 great talks on 3 different topics!
Join us on 18. June in Algebra Lab where we’ll share knowledge first and then some drinks & pizza. Networking will continue most probably after that too 🙂
17:15 – Cracking down Loom sidechains by Mak Muftic from NodeFactory
Has CryptoZombies team found a current solution for one of the Ethereum’s most talked about problem?
Mak will give an overview of how scaling of Ethereum based DApps using Loom sidechain works. What’s the Loom Networks current state, potential and planned future.
17:45 – BUILD with design by Marko Prljić
Blockchain space is largely developer driven and is lacking good UX. We keep hearing that all the time, but what are we doing to change this? Existing design practices such as user research, journey mapping, personas, storyboards, as well as Design Thinking, Design Sprints can and should be part of our development processes. Bringing design practices into the blockchain product development is necessary to make the most impact for a more human, decentralized future and helps everyone make better decisions when BUIDLing new solutions.
18:15 – Tech for Fair Data Society by Zenel Batagelj and Tadej Fius from Datafund
Datafund (https://datafund.io) is a project, a protocol that guards personal data, provides safe storage and enables ethical data exchange. Individuals create their own datafunds to reclaim, own and manage their data. It strongly relies on Ethereum and Swarm (https://swarm-guide.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html) which is a distributed storage platform and content distribution network, a native base layer service of the Ethereum web3 stack, also called “BitTorrent on steroids” as Viktor Tron described it a few years ago. Zenel and Tadej will present the development of the project, what is there for those believing in FairDataSociety (https://fairdatasociety.org/) and want to BUIDL there including fairdrop (https://fairdrop.xyz/), fds.js, chatty and the roadmap for the next 4 months.
