Past feedback:

"I joined Coral Connection’s first event and found that it was very useful for connecting deeply with people within the space! Often times we go to networking events and do not get the chance to meet everyone and understand what they are working on, but Coral Connections was different. We all got an opportunity to explain what we’re working on, what we need and what we can offer. I heard everyone else’s response as well.”

"Coral Connections is an interesting new way to connect blockchain innovators from a diverse set of background. What's most appealing for me was how highly curated the connections were and the rigorous follow up from the team. I met some amazing folks - highly recommend.”

We'll bring wine and feel free to bring some to contribute to the group as well! 

We look forward to seeing you there following Silicon Valley Blockchain Society's November event. 

Guests welcome who are passionate about blockchain and you know fit the ethos of this community :)

Responsible Liquidation - A Crash-Course with Jason Victor, Co-Founder & CEO of Routefire

Responsible Liquidation - A Crash-Course with Jason Victor, Co-Founder & CEO of Routefire

The recent bear market in cryptocurrencies, combined with ongoing regulatory headwinds, has left well-funded ICOs in need of liquidity. And while de-risking portfolios is likely a smart move for projects not intended to serve as investment vehicles, it is critical that large-volume trading — liquidating bags — be done responsibly so as to not adversely impact the entire ecosystem.

Routefire will provide a crash-course on responsible liquidation, alternative methods to protect against downward price pressures, and risk analysis. Finally, we'll teach some trading kung fu as we get into the mechanics of order book layering, and let you in on some trader secrets used to take advantage of large resting orders.

History of Cryptography w/ Cofounder of CoinList

What would you have thought if someone mentioned "crypto" to you a few years ago? Probably not much. But for some true believers, the march toward "crypto" has been going on for decades. 

Protocols, currencies and societies built around enabling the individual through cryptography—this was the dream of the Cypherpunks, and the Promethean cryptographers who came before them delivering crypto from the hands of the government into the masses. 

Come hear how some new ideas are actually quite old, and learn about the people who were working on this long before Satoshi dropped his whitepaper.

Holochain/ How Nature Does Coordination without Consensus

The blockchain community has grappled with ways of overcoming the speed, cost, and scale limitations of global consensus. But maybe consensus itself is the problem.

In this talk, Matthew Schutte, director of communications for Holo, will describe how natural living systems make use of an alternative and truly peer-to-peer approach for building coherence and enforcing shared agreements. This different approach enables not only collaborations of greater speed, scale and efficiency, but enable anti-fragile organisms that become increasingly well adapted to their environment over time. In addition, Matthew will share how his team at Holo is applying these patterns to enable scaleable and fit-for-purpose peer-to-peer applications with Holochain
