POA Network. News and updates #28


Dear Friends,

This week we have a recap of crypto-conference ETHDenver, Roman Storm is here to explain upgradable contracts and to top it off we have another issue of Humans of POA. Let’s kick things off with ETHDenver.

1. ETHDenver
Representing POA Network at the conference were Igor Barinov, Roman Storm, Andrew Cravenho and Ziggy Zeidan. As well as sponsoring and judging the hackathon, Igor Bainov joined a panel to discuss Ethereum’s scalability issues and how POA offers a solution and Roman Storm ran a workshop demoing the latest Bridge technology.

We will have a post later this week with full recap and details of the winners and their projects. As for the hackathon projects, the team narrowed down the many applicants to just three lucky winners:

  1. Bulletproof confidential Transactions - $3,000 in POA tokens
  2. Canteen- $2,000 in POA tokens
  3. Relevant Bonding Curve- $1,000 in POA tokens
