Interested in learning more about blockchain and crypto-currencies like Bitcoin? Come join us to meet Da HongFei and staff at NEO, a non-profit community-based blockchain project, to learn how NEO achieved a meteoric rise to become the #10 highest valued cryptocurrency.
The event will also celebrate NEO becoming a new member of SCET’s Blockchain Lab. Founded in 2014, NEO currently has a market cap of ~$2.6B, having surged in value over this past summer, and is focused on developing a “smart economy” through the marriage of “digital assets + digital identity + smart contracts.”
The founder of NEO, Da Hongfei, founder of EchoLink, Steve Chen, and several others from NEO along with representatives from Ontology, Tsing Hua i-Center and Elastos Foundation, will be joining us at SCET’s location at the Stadium (Plaza Level, Room 122) to speak on the founding of NEO.org, their goals, as well as successes and challenges.
It will be a great opportunity for students to hear firsthand from blockchain-technology based founders, ask questions and mingle with NEO and EchoLink representatives and their associates.
