Continuous was at the HIVE Blockchain Society Event in Brussels the 24 march 2017.

The HIVE is a community for Blockchain enthusiasts and experts (developers, investors, entrepreneurs, etc.) starting a series of initiatives to promote Blockchain as outlined as below:

The program of this event was very interesting with a presentation of Game Theory & Consensus Mechanisms followed by very interesting projects show cases.

The program was:

  • Game Theory & Consensus Mechanisms: Dr Jamsheed Shorish, an experienced university teacher with a background in computational finances & mathematics has been talking about game theory, what impact it has on our daily lives and how it can be applied to rule consensus mechanisms.
  • Decred Decentralised Autonomous Crypto currency.
    Since 2016, Decred has striven to solve blockchain governance. Their innovative, hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake consensus voting system empowers stakeholders and allows for the seamless transition from one set of rules to another. 
  • Giveth is a Decentralized Altruistic Community (DAC). The team’s drive is defined as supporting transparency, open-source development, co-creation, and collaboration. The Giveth community is building a software system, using Ethereum smart contracts, that will radically shift the way people think charity can and should work.

In summary, this was a fantastic day meeting many very interesting people! Looking forward for more HIVE meet-up!
