About the event

John Carvalho and Felix Crisan will discuss upcoming protocol changes ( or rather protocol changes proposals, as it’s likely that some of them won’t make it in the Bitcoin Core releases) and what benefits will they bring (if/when they are adopted).

Intro to Generalized Mining

Join us to discuss how Staking as a Service works what needs to be done to implement it. RSVP here to save your front row spot on June 25, starting at 18:30!

 

About the event

As crypto-currencies and their infrastructure evolve, new consensus models are being tested and while Proof-of-Work is likely to stick around for a while, Proof-of-Stake is already taking an important share of the market. But changes in the entities and the models used so far also means changes to the business models, actors and ecosystems involved.


For this edition, we’ll have again a panel featuring


All three guests are involved with developing, running or operating services that could be qualified as next-gen mining.

In the discussion, we’ll try to answer questions such as

  • What is Staking as a Service?
  • How does it compare with “classical” mining?
  • What are the requirements to run staking services
  • and so on

What’s in it for you?

During the evening, the Blockchain Romania community’s speaker will try to give you some answers to the following questions:

  • Are crypto-currencies the money of the future?
  • Are they, in report with money, analogous to what TCP/IP was for the Internet?
  • What makes a piece of paper valuable just because it has a central bank’s governor signature?
  • What makes Bitcoin different from other coins?
  • Are any attributes (such as decentralization) that make a crypto-currency more valuable?

Blockchain in a Legal context

Join us for in a depth talk about the legal framework behind smart contracts. RSVP here to save your front row spot on March 15, starting 18:30!

 

About the event

Are smart contracts smart enough to function by themselves or is there human intervention required? Can you appeal a decision taken by a smart contract? How does the inherent immutability aspect of blockchain interfere with provisions of existing laws (e.g. right to be forgotten)? Does employing this type of new technologies create liability in the real world? All these and more are aspects we’ll try to debate in another panel Q&A with people coming from legal backgrounds, but having a special interest around blockchain and who can foresee aspects that will need clarification (or, maybe, would be incompatible) when the current legal system is being “translated” in smart-contract lingo.

About the speakers

The panel will be moderated by John Carvalho (one of the panelists in the previous edition) and panelists will be Diana Stetiu, Alexandru Gosa and Paul Babus.

Diana is a senior associate at Bulboaca & Asociatii having significant experience in advising banks, private equity funds, asset management companies, payment institutions and businesses that are interested in electronic payments and e-money. Diana is currently involved in fintech projects, including blockchain based services and crypto-currency exchanges platforms. Diana is an active member of non-profit organizations promoting innovation in technology. She has particular interests in open source projects and DLT.

Alex is a lawyer keen on blockchain and crypto-assets and their relationship with law and regulation. He is part of the New and Emerging Technologies and the Dispute Resolution teams at Peli Filip.

Graduating both Law and Computer Science, Paul is the lead IP expert of the Digital 2 Law network in Romania, involved in the technology sector, combining his dual expertise to provide legal assistance in all aspects of data protection, intellectual property, emerging technologies, internet law, corporate and commercial, advertising and products.
