מקום: אורבן פלייס, אחד העם 9, תל אביב
אנחנו מזמינים מפתחים וחובבי בלוקצ’יין לשמוע על הטכנולוגיה של אלגורנד ולאן פנינו מועדות.
Blockchain technology promised a fairer world, where value could be shared freely across all borders, in a transparent and secure manner, excluding no one.
However, immature technology, currency volatility and the complexity and cost of blockchain technology have been hindering the large scale adoption of blockchain.
We invite developers and blockchain enthusiasts to join us for a night of drinks, networking and discussion on how Algorand is now leading the way in fulfilling blockchain's promise. SDKs, APIs and Dev Tools will be reviewed.
Algorand’s blockchain platform creates full transparency, protection and speed within a truly decentralized network. It achieves velocity on par with large payment and financial networks while securely scaling to billions of users. Algorand’s pure proof-of-stake approach is the first of its kind to provide immediate transaction finality without forking.
Admissions is free, but space is limited so make sure to get your ticket!
