Top Cryptocurrency Online Events You Should Not Miss in April 2020
Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, many crypto events have been postponed, but several have decided to be hosted online so that crypto enthusiasts can still participate from their homes. If you are interested in participating in an online crypto event, you have come to the right place.
Here is our list of the top online crypto events that are scheduled to take place this April.
4th Cointelligence Academy Community Meetup
Event date: 1-2 April 2020
Scheduled hour: 6:30 GMT
Cointelligence Academy will be hosting its online crypto event at 6:30 GMT on the 1st of April, so that people can take part in the event while still in self-isolation. The participation instructions will be sent to everyone who has registered via email, and they will be shown how to access this meetup.
The event will discuss some of the newest innovations in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry and will provide a platform where the community will be able to share their knowledge and interact with people of similar interests.
Members will have access to online crypto education content, and they will be able to talk about the latest smart contracts platform which will enter the space or about the newest DeFi projects.
“We’re doing this because we feel the need for an objective, non-judgemental, and agenda-free learning environment, which is why we created Cointelligence Academy in the first place,” – stated the creators of the event.
Like their site, the meetups will not provide investment advice, try to promote a certain coin or project, or favor one project over another. The platform will provide an unbiased setting where everyone is welcome to discuss their own opinions and impart their insight on projects, and ultimately come to conclusions on their own.
There will be no speakers or keynote speeches at these events, but there will still be an agenda for topics to give a sense of organization. The agenda of this event is based on the information suggested by the community.
Cointelligence Academy allows community members to propose subjects before the meetup, and then the entire community votes which ones they want to be featured at the event. The topics that are the most voted will be ranked the highest on the topic list.
Brightlands Techruption Ideation Session 2/2
Event date: 7 April 2020
Scheduled hour: 10:00 – 12:00 CEST
The second session of the Brightlands Techruption event will take place this April and will be titled “Ideation on problems with confidentiality vs privacy and possible solutions.”
To deter the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the event will take place online, just like its first session. The members that have registered for the session will receive a link via an email address, which will invite them to the event’s Microsoft Teams online meeting room.
The online crypto event will focus on matters related to confidentiality and privacy solutions that can be implemented via blockchain and transparency and confidentiality. Participants that are less tech-savvy will be able to understand at the end of the session how and which solutions to integrate solutions with blockchain.
The meetup will be examining the real-life problems encountered when using blockchain technology to improve communication between companies, government bodies, and other parties. The online session will be an in-depth exploration of how to balance transparency with confidentiality after a successful proof-of-concept implementation.
“The shared truth that the blockchain provides is nicely transparent & auditable, and even programmable (smart contracts!). However, most things that matter have aspects that you do not want the whole world to know. It could be confidential information that might benefit your competitors (pricing information, market size, etc) or you simply want to protect the privacy of the people involved. Luckily, there are methods to find a balance between transparency on the one hand and confidentiality on the other. Some work on an architectural level (move things off-chain), others require the application of advanced cryptography (e.g., zero-knowledge proofs, zk-SNARKS, bulletproofs),” – explained the organizers.
Event date: 16-17 April 2020
Scheduled hour: N/A
