Algorand Singapore: Inaugural Meetup

We invite Singapore based blockchain developers, researchers and businesses to join us for an afternoon of networking and discussion around the future of blockchain and solving the “blockchain trilemma”!

Turing Award winner and MIT professor Silvio Micali will tell you about Algorand: a new foundational blockchain, developed from scratch, on totally new principles, which simultaneously guarantees true decentralization, scalability, and security. Head of Engineering, Naveed Ihsanullah, will present on developer tools and community engagement.

This event is hosted by Singapore University of Social Sciences. Tea and light snacks will be available.

Founded by cryptography pioneer Silvio Micali, Algorand fulfills the promise of blockchain technology through a first-of-its-kind blockchain transaction platform purpose-built for business. Unlike previous blockchains, the Algorand platform solves the “blockchain trilemma” by offering the true decentralization, scalability and security that businesses need while also distributing opportunity to everyone who builds applications or transacts on the Algorand platform.

Algorand provides an infrastructure for existing businesses and new projects to operate globally in the emerging decentralized economy.

Algorand’s first-of-its-kind, permissionless, pure proof-of-stake protocol supports the scale, open participation, and transaction finality required to build systems for billions of users.
