For the September Meetup, we’re very lucky to have CEO and Co-Founder of the very awesome Airbitz, Paul Puey here in Melbourne.
Airbitz is based in California and Paul will only be in Australia for a few days before travelling onto New Zealand.
Paul will be speaking about the powerful and unique benefits of blockchain technology. He’ll also be discussing the very important, but less talked about, limitations of the technology.
He’ll also cover:
• use cases of blockchain technology for property management and identity verification;
• business use cases which have hit blockchain technical limitations and how they could have been resolved; and
• ways to create systems that overcome these limitations while still reaping the benefits of blockchain tech.
The last time Paul was here in Melbourne was at the start of 2015, so we are looking forward to having him come visit and enjoy our revamped MBTC co-working space. We also look forward to hearing about the success Airbitz has enjoyed over the past 18 months and their future plans.
About Paul Puey (CEO and Co-founder, Airbitz)
Paul is a proud Electrical Engineering and Computer Science graduate of UC Berkeley with a wide range of technical skills from low-level 3D graphics engineering to development of custom web CMS systems, even before people knew what a CMS was.
He held lead engineering positions with Nvidia and Chromatic Research, but most recently owned and operated several non-technical small businesses throughout California. There he learned the importance of the intersection of people, business, and technology.
Today, Paul aims to bring Bitcoin mainstream with software and products aimed at simplifying Bitcoin and making it insanely easy to send and secure this revolutionary currency while maintaining the highest level of privacy.
