MaidSafe, the SAFENetwork and Bitcoin Meetup in Brighton

November 21, 2019 @ 19:00 21:00

We are looking forward to meeting up with as many local SAFE Network fans as possible for an informal evening of discussion and socialising. We welcome MaidSafe long-time enthusiasts as well as beginners. So don’t feel like you have to be an expert to join us!

As always, there will be plenty of people around to socialise — informal discussion and questions are encouraged. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

In the past, we have had a mixture of introduction and technical talks by Maidsafe staff members and other crypto and blockchain projects.

This time, we have a very varied line up prepared! Alongside a talk by a Maidsafe staff member, we will also host Particl’s Ambassador, Dr Kapil Amarasinghe, and Mike Cohen, Founder of Radicle Society.

Mike will give a talk on Radicle and Using Lightning Network.

Kapil will explain how the Particl network enables secure eCommerce without the need to disclose or provide, record or store any personal information. His presentation will cover Particl’s integration of a marketplace into a custom blockchain with a native privacy coin (PART) which utilises RingCT and CT technologies; and how their escrow requires only buyer and seller and removes the need for a trusted third party handler by using automated smart contracts, deposits and game theory. He will discuss Particl’s upcoming storefront feature which allows vendors to create custom marketplaces populated with only their listings and whose existence is unknowable to the network users unless they possess the view-key for it. He will also cover on-chain governance features designed to prevent Particl turning into a DNM and explain how the proof of stake algorithm is incentivised via potential positive feedback loops to encourage increased node proliferation, decentralisation of currency and liquidity with growth in security as network usage increases. Finally, since the Particl marketplace is already live, he will attempt to demonstrate these features on a local laptop as time permits.
