However to kick things off, we’ll be hosting an event in Tokyo on the 6th December, be sure to stop! Register for the event here.
Crypto Explorers Pilot Event @ Singapore (26 November)
Round Table Discussion: The Future of Decentralization & Crypto
Dorjee was invited to participate in a small but intimate pilot event organized by Crypto Explorers, discussing the macro outlook for decentralization and all things crypto. It was a wide-ranging discussion with influencers and project leaders in this space, covering decentralization as a driver for meaningful and positive innovation across multiple industries (beyond finance) and social sectors.
About Crypto Explorers
Based in Zug Switzerland, Crypto Explorers is a community set up for those who are passionate about the blockchain, decentralization, and a cryptographic future. Closely aligning with many of Perlin’s core values, the Crypto Explorers community stands for the principles that:
- the decentralized future is a net positive for the world
- collaboration with other like-minded individuals will help us better understand possible societal disruptions (positive and negative)
- exchange of ideas in curated intimate settings with intellectually curious people is essential
- remaining pragmatic in efforts to advance decentralization is critical
United Conference of Internet Money @ Sentosa, Singapore (26–27 November)
UCIM Panel Discussion: Cryptocurrencies — Are they Hedging Against the Existing System?
Dorjee was invited to join a panel at UCIM focused on the role of cryptocurrencies as a hedge against existing financial systems. Other panellists included industry thought leaders Brian Wee (CEO FundPlaces), Darryl Lo (Founding Partner DYOR Capital), and Daniel Santos (CEO Token Advisors).
Dorjee took the opportunity to explain how Perlin’s economic framework and built-in financial incentives operate as a powerful new form of hedge to both traditional and crypto markets. For the millions of people globally (especially in struggling developing countries) who will be able to rent out their compute power, Perlin also serves as a powerful new form of hedge against their other existing sources of income.
Bringing together industry leaders and innovators from around the world, the UCIM Conference was focused on how decentralization lays the foundation for the monetization of ideas that result in technological disruption and revolution across industries. The Singapore conference offered a middle ground between centralized traditional structures and the emerging ideas of a decentralized economy. Its vision is to be a borderless and friction-free network to help support the integration of technologies, businesses, ideas, and dreams.
