Talk abstract:

 Deploying Dollars on the Blockchain

Brent and Ilan will take you through deploying your first smart contract and integrating it from a simple financial decentralized application (dapp). The focus will be on a token that is 1:1 backed with reserved dollars similar to stablecoins like USDP and BUSD. Get a whirlwind tour of the Ethereum blockchain, crypto signing, tokenized assets, and web3, with instructive parts of the code left to be filled in during the workshop.
