Description

Validator Economics: Where PoS meets the financial pavement

As we inch closer to the launch of many public Proof of Stake networks, there is a need for a deeper understanding of the economics and tax implications of validation. Protocol developers, professional node operation services, and investors have different incentives, and ensuring that all parties can participate fairly is of the utmost importance at network launch.

Join Bison Trails, Gauntlet, and TQ in trying to understand these issues with various participants from NYU, Cornell, Cosmos, Tezos, Iqlusion, Polychain, NEAR, Ava Labs, Galaxy & Paradigm. We will have two talks about economics modeling from Ava Labs and NEAR Protocol, as well two panels with diverse groups of experts, and great food & beverages.
