One Kew Road
Welcome to the February Richmond Blockchain Technology Meetup.
The meetup will be at One Kew Road, on the first floor. We will start at 6:30pm with the first talk at 6:45pm.
This month we have the following two talks:
– Rushd Averroes, Founder and CEO of BABB – Blockchain: the key to decentralising banking and completing financial inclusion
1.7 billion people around the world are excluded from the banking system; billions more are dissatisfied. We need to change the way we address the problem of financial exclusion, and Rushd will discuss how blockchain technology is the key.
– Mike Christensen (software engineer at Blokur) – Better music rights data with blockchain technology
Blokur is working on upgrading the rights infrastructure of the music industry. The web has brought about a revolution in the way that content and information flows around the world, but we have yet to unlock the same level of efficiency in the flow of value back to creators. Mike Christensen will explain how Blokur leverages blockchain technology to increase efficiency and trust in the management and monetisation of creative rights.
