For the final leg of our Stellar series, let’s dive deeper into the Stellar ecosystem. Let’s discuss the role of anchors and their importance in Stellar’s payments network.
One of the first Stellar anchors is Coins.ph. Certainly, Coins do not need further introduction. Suffice is to say that Coins.ph is one of the leading mobile financial service providers that enables its users to pay and get paid around Southeast Asia, powered of course by blockchain technology.
Colin Goltra – Head of Product at Coins.ph – will join us to share how Coins are using the Stellar network to enhance some of its products and services. If we get lucky, we might convince Colin to talk about his financial inclusion advocacy. For more information about Coins.ph, please see this link: https://coins.ph/
As usual, we shall endeavor to distribute Stellar Lumens (XLM) to the participants of this meetup.
This is an open event. No need to seek permission if you wish to attend although we certainly appreciate the RSVP.
Our open forum welcomes discussion of other topics not necessarily relevant to the announced theme. However, please allow the organizers opportunity to moderate our discussion.
Let’s discuss Ethereum’s potential to transform the legacy financial system. We’ll also cover the status of institutional adoption in the Philippines or whatever blockchain agenda local financial institutions might roll out in the medium term.
In Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott’s book, Blockchain Revolution, they noted at least eight core functions that are ripe for disruption and blockchain technology’s significant impact on the next steps forward:
- Authenticating identity and value.
- Moving value.
- Storing value.
- Lending value.
- Exchanging value.
- Funding and investing.
- Insuring value and managing risk.
- Accounting for value.
What do they actually mean? Do you agree that blockchain technology will have an overwhelming disruptive effect on a traditionally conservative sector such as the financial industry?
Looking forward to hear your thoughts.
