Event on 2017-12-20 19:00:00
Blockchain is the most important new technology that most are still in the early stages of understanding. Blockchain is constructing a more democratic and decentralized future, whose beneficiaries will range widely, anywhere from Syrian refugees to investment bankers. The World Economic Forum estimates that by 2027, 10% of global GDP will be stored on blockchain technology. Rapidly evolving Blockchain technology and startups are poised to fundamentally change entire business models, fundraising models, business operations, payments systems, data storage, and more. Startups from the Blockchain space are creating a whole new economy relying on the distribution of wealth. The token sales format is disrupting the traditional exclusive startup investment scheme by lowering entrance barriers for investors and aligning interest among its founders, stakeholders, and future users. Come learn the core basics of startup investment and see some of the leading players in the space discuss how crowd sales have overtaken venture capital as the main financial driver of innovation for Blockchain projects. We will also create a dialog about the nascent industry’s effect on venture capital, regulatory environments, as well as talks from projects of the past and the future in methodology and design. Introduction to the StartupToken Accelerator by Yacine Teraï, CEO of StartupToken 'Token sales: Facts, Fiction and Future' by Eddy Travia, CEO of Coinsilium Startups pitches of 12min followed by Q&A  Discussion Panel about Blockchain Market & Economy Startups Pitching: -Sandblock - The Satisfaction Protocol Sandblock is creating the first worldwide open coalition of merchants and customers using the advantages of cryptocurrencies and the underlying blockchain technology. Today’s merchants are disconnected with each others; customer engagement and loyalty programs are failing. Even if loyalty coalitions exist, they remain exclusive and extremely expensive for everyone. The Sandblock project aims to solve those issues by leveraging blockchain technologies and creating the Satisfaction protocol, a trustless protocol based on the Ethereum blockchain where merchants can emit their own tokens and customers can enjoy tradable, autonomous rewards for their engagement and loyalty."  Sarah-Diane Eck is an engineer at Sandblock and leads the marketing and business development of the project, she has been involved in the blockchain and startup community for several years and helped multiple successful startups to launch and develop their projects. She previously worked in investment banking, foundation creation and digital marketing. She is also specialized on legal matters regarding user data protection and the upcoming GDPR, foundations & charities, and the constantly evolving crypto assets regulations.  - Academy School of Blockchain At Academy, you'll learn to code Blockchain infrastructure at an online university.
