573: Hack Summit 2018 – Riccardo “Fluffy Pony” Spagni
Hack Summit is the world’s largest virtual event and gathering of developers in history, which aims to build awareness and further the advancement of future technologies. Founded in 2014 by Ed Roman, Hack Summit has attracted 64,000 (2014) and 80,000 (2016) attendees and raised over $100,000 for coding non-profits.
In 2018, hack.summit() returns as a special blockchain-themed event, known as hack.summit (“blockchain”). It unites blockchain leaders from around the globe to educate the world on their protocols and to support charitable causes, which promote diversity and equality in programming.
Through speaking engagements, educational sessions and workshops, and a massive virtual hackathon, hack.summit() aims to engage and empower developers around the world to participate in a global community dedicated to building a better future. hack.summit() is brought to you by Hack VC, a venture capital firm based in San Francisco CA.
At this year’s virtual conference that is dedicated to blockchain and crypto, I caught up with Riccardo “Fluffy Pony” Spagni from Monero before he delivered his fireside chat at the event to learn more about what to expect from the Hack Summit and the future of Monero.
Although blockchain is a complex subject, the speakers will be talking in a language that everyone can understand. As the industry matures there is a much stronger focus on education and the mainstream adoption of this technology as the speed of transformational change gathers pace.
