Boston Blockchain Events Week of October 12, 2020

Man thinking about Government solutions and plans.

And don’t forget to keep the following Thursday evening free too because Women in Blockchain will serve up part 2 of their DeFi workshop focused on Yield Farming. If you missed the first session no worries, you can catch up with Part 1 here. And thanks to the Women in Blockchain for recording the first session and making it available.

All you have to do is apply to become a member (takes just a minute of your time) to be sure you’ll stay informed on all Boston area blockchain events. Digital blockchain technology is the future of many global industries. Get involved in the future.

DeFi. Yield Farming. Liquidity Mining. Have you been hearing these terms in 2020, but aren’t clear on what they mean? In the second part of this two-part workshop series, we will look at the new hype around Yield Farming and what the good intentions are around governance as well as the fallbacks of an emergent ecosystem being able to spin up a random token for yield scams.

New career.

Virtual Meetup: Deep Disruption – Regulatory Nodes, ZKP’s, and CBDC

Thursday, September 17, 2020, 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM EDT

As any visitor to Boston knows, the downtown Boston street-map is a random mish-mash of streets dating to the horse trails and cow paths of the 1600s. With digital currency, CBDC, etc. rather than simply ‘paving the cowpaths’, how should we be architecting financial regulation today for 20 years from now when everything is on blockchain rails? The combination of Blockchain, AI, IoT, ML, etc. will profoundly impact how financial oversight is done by governments, especially relative to safety and soundness, while adequately protecting for confidentiality, reducing the cost of oversight, and flagging systemic risks. But what are the questions we should be asking NOW to drive the architecture of tomorrow?

Happy Labor Day.

A happy Labor Day to all you Boston blockchain enthusiasts! As we move into autumn, the air is cooling and soon the trees will give us a fireworks display of colors.

There will be one last chance to enjoy nature together with Zbay in the Park, and the coming week also features a session exploring identity blockchains for decentralized digital identities. Later in the week join the Boston Blockchain Association as we investigate architecting financial regulation today to account for a blockchain future with Virtual Meetup: Deep Disruption – Regulatory Nodes, ZKP’s, and CBDC.

Session: Indicio.tech – Identity Blockchain leveraging Indy, Aries

Wednesday, September 9, 2020, 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EDT

Identity blockchains for decentralized digital identities. For the past three years, the Hyperledger Indy, Ursa, and Aries communities have helped drive the course of decentralized identity innovation, and with it, grown the community by tenfold. More developers, engineers, and companies are becoming interested in building decentralized identity solutions and seeking out ways to manage the ‘new normal’ brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Touchless, private, and secure interactions are now driving tech and decentralized identity offers a way to build that new, better normal.

This will be the first Boston Zcash meetup in ages, this time, in the fresh outdoors. Welcome back! Bring your laptop if you’d like to test out the app’s features between ourselves and other Zbayers, sending messages over shielded Zcash memos and making trades. Also, bring food and drink if you want to make it a picnic. If you have a folding chair, that could come in handy.

Blockchain Bonds: How They Work and Why We Need The

Thursday, September 3, 2020, 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM EDT

How will we make it through the coming financial crisis? Blockchain offers a solution, in the form of blockchain bonds — like traditional bonds, but cheaper, easier, and sexier. (You read that right.) Blockchain bonds offer a new way for states and municipalities to raise funds, with all the benefits of blockchain. In this one-time-only Meetup, you’ll hear from Alex Kostura, Founding General Manager of ConsenSys DC, and one of the world’s leading experts on tokenized assets. Alex will walk us through ConsenSys Codefi, a leading tokenization platform, showing us how governments and corporations can tokenize all kinds of traditional financial assets — including bonds! — with real-life examples.

Boston Basic Income #117: Sovereign MoneyBasic income.

Wednesday, September 2, 2020, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM EDT

In his 2020 book, “Basic Income and Sovereign Money: The Alternative to Economic Crisis and Austerity Policy,” economist Geoff Crocker makes the case for issuing a basic income in the form of “debt-free” sovereign money. The idea is that the government can pay out a basic income without collecting any taxes or taking on any debt. To what extent is this possible? How can the concept of “debt-free” or “non-debt” money help us understand the economy? How does a sovereign-money basic income compare to the Consumer Monetary Theory (CMT) perspective that we’ve previously discussed?

Boston Blockchain Events Week of August 24, 2020

CBDC

We learned this past week that research teams from the Boston Fed and Massachusetts Institute of Technology are engaged in a “multi-year effort to build and test a hypothetical digital currency oriented to central bank uses.” They are talking about the possibility of dollars and cents becoming digital and using blockchain technology to make that happen. This is obviously huge news, not only for Boston’s blockchain community but for the global blockchain community.

Expect to see more blockchain jobs in the Boston area in support of this research. In fact, we already have one listed in the ‘Careers in Blockchain’ and the end of the newsletter. And while you’re waiting for this to bear fruit make plans to come on out and learn about Blockchain Bonds: How They Work and Why We Need Them. That event won’t happen until September 3, but you can put it on your calendar now.
