My university is going wild on crytpo! (Istanbul, Turkey)


#1

About two months ago Peter had a video about my university BAU launching the first Blockchain research center in Turkey. I had to see it to believe it. I went to check it out and there it was

They were happy to meet me a fellow blockchain enthusiast until I mentioned Bitcoin and Ethereum. Turns out they’re only interested in private blockchains and ripple nipple systems. I dug a little deeper and found that the center is led by the economics department not the engineering (go figure). Nevertheless, I think it’s a huge step for adoption and the more they research the more they will find themselves closer to buying dem sexual Bitcoins :kissing_heart:

And yesterday we held a workshop/meetup for Ethereum fans in Istanbul and with the help of a very bright ConsenSys engineer we learned how to build off-chain payment channels and atomic swaps contracts. Hellafun :pizza:
