Felix Weis – Are high fees the end of Bitcoin?

In December 2017 bitcoin users paid the highest fees ever for transacting on the bitcoin blockchain. The median transaction fee spiked from under $0.20 in December 2016 to over $30 in December 2017. We analyse some data points and reasons for this quick run-up and discuss improvements that wallets, exchanges and users can implement today to improve confirmation times and lower their transaction costs.

Mirco Recksiek – ICO Rating – How to do your Homework on ICOs

The hype of ICOs has reached a critical mass. Everyone is trying to find the new Bitcoin, Ethereum or NEO. Each week we have tons of ICOs coming up, but how do you find the good ones? Websites with advices or public spreadsheets of influencers are helpful, but do you really understand the rating or do you just blindly follow best rated ICOs? In my talk I will show you how important it is to do understand Token Metrics, ratings and their challenges. I will show you how the ICO game changed since it reached main stream. Be ready for maybe the last chance to get into ICOs and join my talk.

Amith Nirgunarthy – Predictive Linguistics

Deep dive review of Blockstreet’s attempt to interpret the results of five years of crypto data harvested from the internet to build upon Clif High’s work. “Predictive Linguistics is the process of using computer software to aggregate vast amounts of written text from the internet by categories delineated by emotional content of the words and using the result to make forecasts based on the emotional ‘tone’ changes within the larger population. A form of ‘collective sub-conscious expression’ is a good way to think of it. Predictive linguistics can be used to forecast trends at many different levels, from the detail of sales to individuals, all the way up to forecasts about emerging global population trends.” Cliff High

Jasmin Güngör – Security Token: Scheinkategorie oder neuer Trend?

ICO-Projekte waren in der Vergangenheit hauptsächlich darum bemüht, einen Utility Token zu issuen, um eben keine Security zu sein. Außer einigen wenigen Beispielen wie tZERO sind bis dato kaum Security Token verkauft worden. Hört man sich in der Community um, stellt man fest, dass etliche Projekte in den Startlöchern stehen. Polymath, eine Plattform, die es erlaubt Security Token unter der Verwendung des hauseigenen ST-20 Standards zu issuen, arbeitet aktuell mit etlichen Projekten zusammen. Auch die Gibraltar Exchange gibt als erste vollregulierte Cryptocurrency Exchange an, in naher Zukunft Security Token listen zu wollen. Aufgrund zunehmender Regulierung und Professionalisierung scheint der Security Token wesentlich schneller als erwartet, aus seinem Scheinkategorie-Dasein auszubrechen, um zum neuen Trend zu werden.

Auf Grund seiner besonderen Historie zwischen 30 Jahren Unabhaengigkeitskrieg; Vertreibung, Hungersnot und Armut in den Nachkriegsjahren sowie der im Rahmen der sozialistischen Bruderhilfe nach Osteuropa uebersandten Vertragsarbeiter besitzt Vietnam eine weit verstreute Diaspora von ueber 4 Millionen “Viet Kieu” (Auslandsvietnamesen), deren Haushalte bis zum heutigen Tage oftmals in Vietnam verbliebene Familienangehoerige finanziell unterstuetzen. In juengeren Jahren spielen in einem aufstrebenden Vietnam auch Cross-Border-Transfers fuer Outsourcing im IT-Bereich eine zunehmend bedeutsame Rolle. Welche Rolle Kryptowaehrungen vor diesem Hintergrund derzeit einnehmen und zukuenftig einnehmen koennen werden – darauf blickt Dominik Weil von Vietnam’s erstem Bitcoin Exchange BitcoinVN.we

Marcel Kuhs – Proof of Existence for Supply-Chain-Finance

The topic deals with the discrepancy between wishful thinking and the actual state of blockchain-use-cases for the supply-chain. AZHOS shows how real-world-assets are at the same time an essential requirement, but also an important criterion for the credibility of blockchain use cases. AZHOS enables banks and financial institutions a new form of supply-chain-finance due to a decentralized proof of existence.

Vít Jedlička – Liberland state model for 21st century

Liberland has attracted in excess of 450,000 applications for citizenship, and applies a concept of voluntary taxation. The state intends to be a leading role model in the 21st century, combining the best governance practices from constitutions of Switzerland and USA while implementing the latest state of the art technology such as blockchain, as well as proven concepts such as E-Residency demonstrated by Estonia. The creation of a new country requires an extensive array of diplomatic, legal and technological challenges, which are essential for the proper development of a nation. Modern countries have in many cases become burdened with obstacles, rather than supporting the economic development of a society.  Over regulation and excessive taxation are smothering the economic growth, particularly in Europe.  Is the creation of a new smaller jurisdiction, with low taxation policies the correct answer to the stagnation of economic growth?

Erik Vollstädt – Bitnation: P2P Governance Services: Decentralized, borderless, voluntary nations on the blockchain

Before nations, before borders, there was the Supercontinent Pangea. Since then the world has been divided by tectonic schisms, widening oceans and, more recently, stifling politics. Nation states are cracking apart under the weight of local and global challenges that they seem incapable of solving. Rather than embracing a borderless economy and increasing personal freedoms, nation states and multilateral organizations have overseen a resurgence in bureaucracy and protectionism.
If we are to prevent a drift towards tyranny, this must come to an end. This autumn, Bitnation intends to reset society by initiating another tectonic shift with the launch of the Pangea Jurisdiction. The Westphalian construct is outdated, and the arbitrarily drawn lines called borders, which were once supposed to provide stability, are now the direct cause of instability, due to their ‘one size fits all’ design. The nation state model offers little to no personal liberty of choice, in terms of geographical movement, and choice of governance service providers.

People are assumed to be content with the same rules and services as everybody around them, simply by the virtue of living in the same geographical area. Yet many people cannot fathom a world without governments, they believe it will descend into chaos — and most people do want various degrees of services governments are supposed to provide. Thanks to globalization, the world has become increasingly less geographically contingent — through international trade, communications, and cheap transport. People are increasingly connected across borders, which results in desires less defined by their geographical origin, or location.

Certain groups of people already live entirely international lifestyles, without much ties to any specific nation. Opt-out options are emerging, but they require geographical relocation, which may not be desirable, nor possible, for everybody. Hence, as an alternative, Bitnation aims to provide peer-to-peer governance through virtual nations. The Pangea Software is a Decentralized Opt-In Jurisdiction where Citizens can conduct peer-to-peer arbitration and create Nations. Pangea uses the Panthalassa mesh, which is built using Secure Scuttlebutt (SSB) and Interplanetary File System (IPFS) protocols. This enables Pangea to be highly resilient and secure, conferring resistance to emergent threats such as high- performance quantum cryptography. Pangea is blockchain agnostic, but uses the Ethereum blockchain for the time being. In the future, other chains such as Bitcoin, EOS and Tezos can be integrated with Pangea.

In the Pangea Jurisdiction Citizens are able to make peer-to-peer agreements, resolve disputes, and access governance services from DBVNs, using the legal code of their preference. In addition, Pangea provides core infrastructure for other Voluntary Nations. That means Pangea serves as a decentralized jurisdiction on which Voluntary Nations can be created, joined and lived-in.
