This Week in the Labs: March 25th

How do you get people to start using crypto as their primary form of payment? You add it to your toolkit! Jack Dorsey, CEO of Square, wants to hire cryptocurrency engineers to design and work on adding crypto as part of their payment software.

Weekly Rewind

Our week kicked off with a one on one with Steve Andrews. Steve is a financial leader and the President of The Bank of Oswego. Steve sat down with the startups and gave them advice about leadership and financial direction.

On Wednesday we had our monthly meetup. This month we focused on the gaming industry development in blockchain. Sean Keith (BitGuild), Malcolm Flack (bbuck), and John Pak (Blockchain Gamer) joined us to give their expert opinion on the industry.

Scanta, Slips, and Cent presented their pitch-deck to the audience to showcase how they are using blockchain in gaming.

And our video series continued this week with a list of Giveaways around the world of ETC Labs
