Event description

Description

The cryptocurrency bear market of 2018 saw both Ethereum and Bitcoin tokens lose more than 80% of their peak value, but that doesn’t mean development has slowed. Ignoring the market and speculation of crypto tokens, let's explore how these crypto tokens, notably Ethereum, have improved! Join Scott Bigelow, VP of Engineering at Amberdata (a blockchain data company) in an interactive exploration. He’ll share what cryptocurrencies, like Ethereum, are capable above, aside from being bought, sold, and transferred. This session will discuss topics such as "stable" coins, cross-chain bridges, games, hardware wallets, and more.

Purpose:

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.


Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
