Blockchain technology has fast sprouted to become one of the most exciting innovations of today’s time. The benefits of blockchain are endless, and through the use of blockchain, many corporations have reaped noteworthy business benefits, including better transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, and speed of transactions. However, most well-known blockchain-based applications do not run on a mobile phone. This is astounding when considering that half of the world's internet traffic comes via mobile.
Join us on the 14th of October for a fireside chat with Evan Kereiakes, Head of Ecosystem Development - Northern Asia, at Celo, as we discuss some tools and methods on how to make blockchain more accessible & mobile-friendly. Celo is an open platform that aims to eliminate crypto-boundaries and make financial tools accessible to anyone who owns a mobile.
What we will talk about?
- What can we learn from Celo when developing a blockchain-based mobile app?
- Being a direct competitor of Facebook's Libra, what are the main strategies Celo is using to be better at maintaining its user's security?
- How would developers around the world benefit from Celo SDK's DAppKit and ContractKit?
