The Key to Cryptocurrency Mass Adoption - Stable Coins
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Who would buy a pizza with bitcoin if the price of bitcoin could double overnight? How can cryptocurrency possibly be adopted on a large scale if no one ever wants to spend it?

Stable coins—tokens that maintain a relatively constant price—could be the key.

Come learn about Dai: a decentralized, stable, and asset-backed hard currency that maintains its price relative to the US dollar through a permissionless loan system on the Ethereum blockchain. We'll discuss how the system works, how it can benefit other projects in the space, and why stable coins are so vitally important for the mass adoption of cryptocurrency.
