Cake and UX - Haiti


Cake and UX: How blockchain (that built bitcoin), can reshape the future of Haiti & its diaspora.

The blockchain technology that built bitcoins has drastically changed the way people use money and manage assets in the digital world. Major media coverage of cryptocurrency has not been great and has not provided a full report to what the new technology is capable of and can do. Because for the first time, this emerging technology is giving power back to the people, by removing unwanted mediators from financial agreements and transactions. For the first time in history people are able to have access to secure and decentralized form of digital currency and banking created by the blockchain system. For the first time in history people can ensure the integrity of their democratic process is fair and transparent in a blockchain-powered election. 

With this technology, Haiti can be transformed, lead a new generation, and efficiently restructure Haiti’s economic future. 

We will discuss:

  • What is blockchain, cryptocurrency, and what makes them so different from other technologies and services

  • How the diaspora can come together and connect with Haitians on the ground, and figure out a practical solution to remedy Haiti’s economic health through the blockchain system

  • Ways the technology can work in the current infrastructure and government 

  • The architectural difference between centralized application versus decentralized (DApps) applications

  • Real-world examples in blockchain and cryptocurrency, of how to apply it to existing projects and businesses

  • Case studies from big brands, startups, independent entrepreneurs using blockchain and cryptocurrency

  • ...And more.

Business people, doctors, nurses, accountants, lawyers, real estate agents, sales people, bakers, hair dressers, makeup, fashion designers, artists, IT managers, web developers, software developers, research analysts, political scientists, fintechs creators, computer programmers, graphic designers, engineers, mobile app developers, economists, database administrators, all are welcome at this event.

6:00 pm - 6:30 pm: Doors open, cake and wine for guests, networking.
