I'll keep this post pinned on the home page and updated. Since ghost is primarily a blogging platform (which I prefer because it's easy to use, beautifully designed, and allows for independent blogging w/o paywalls like Medium), I believe this is the best way to publicly maintain this information.

Past Speaking Events 2019

Berlin Blockchain Week (August 2019)

  • DApp Development in JavaScript
DApp development workshop

This was a workshop I held with co-worker and CKB-VM co-developer Xuejie. We explained the fundamentals of the Nervos Network's layer 1 blockchain's - the common knowledge base (CKB) - programming model and dove into writing and deploying user defined tokens in JavaScript straight to the blockchain.

  • Cryptoeconomic Design of CKB
Presentation I gave on cryptoeconomics during Berlin Blockchain Week. Shoutout to my fiancee supporting me in the front row!

This was a talk I gave at the token economics meetup sponsored by Fluence Labs and hosted by OSCoin. In this talk, I described the problems that many blockchains face today from an economics standpoint that damage the blockchain's long term sustainability. I also described why a smart contract platform must be store of value and then explained how Nervos Network's CKB innovates at the economic level to solve problems of sustainability, value capture, scalability, and state growth.
