Headline: Understanding Bancor – Permanently Liquid Currencies

Abstract: On June 12th, 2017, the Bancor protocol broke crowdsale records, raising $153 million in 2.5 hours. The goal: to create a new form of currency called ‘smart tokens’, and use them to bring total liquidity to all cryptocurrencies & ignite a long tail of cryptocurrencies for every use case we humans can come up with.

Eddy Azar will be explaining, from abstract philosophy & seeds of the idea, to nitty gritty code and maths, that lead to the invention of a new form of currency and the potential shift in the global economic model it might precipitate.

This is the young story of Bancor. What it is & why its paradigm is shifting.

This is an interactive event where we encourage everyone to ask questions during the Q&A session.


Eddy has been a blockchain geek since being introduced to Bitcoin a few months before it broke $1000 in 2013. Since then he’s helped start the Bitcoins in Bali group, re-start the Bitcoin Singapore meetup, and growth hacked for companies like TenX, Golem, and now Bancor. Eddy is currently advising crypto companies on growth hacking, both up to and after the ICO.
