GEO Team at the Berlin Blockchain Week 2019 + Layer 2 Meetup Berlin Edition Report
The last few weeks have been really busy here at GEO Protocol! You’re about to find out exactly what we’ve been so busy with – we also intend to keep you updated on great upcoming events and announcements (hints to some of them will be given at the end of this article).
But let’s start by taking a moment to report on the past events that took place a couple of weeks ago. We mean Blockchain Week in Berlin that took place at the end of August 2019, as well as Layer 2 Meetup: Berlin edition that we successfully organized.
Berlin Blockchain Week 2019
Great event, as ever! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and all those friends and new acquaintances we met there. It’s always nice to meet like-minded people in between our hard work schedule. And of course, it’s great to get new business opportunities.
Specifically, the GEO Protocol team visited a number of meetups, among them were the following:
- Token Engineering Global Gathering
- Decentralized Storage Summit
- Blockchain Hackers
Also, our team members Max Demyan and Vitaliy Gataulin were interviewed during the DappCon by Basic Block Radio, the Russian-speaking podcast. You can watch the interview here(in Russian).
Layer 2 Meetup: Berlin edition
And of course, GEO Protocol with the support of CoinFundcontinued to organize the Layer 2 Meetup.
The first one we held in New York this year during New York Blockchain Week was a success, so we decided to hold the Berlin edition on August 21, 2019.
Layer 2 Meetup: Berlin edition
This time our speakers discussed the following topics:
- The current state of Layer 2 technologies & the main challenges they face.
- Community development and the creation of common standards & databases.
- Layer 2 Adoption: user experience, state channel use cases.
And the speakers were these great guys:
- Christopher Swenor from Alacris
- Anurag Arjun from Matic Network
- Chris Buckland from Pisa Research
- Vadym Nesterenko from GEO Protocol
- Alex Gluchowski from Matter Labs
- Dominik Schmid from Raiden Network
