BUIDLing a secure & low budget Hardware Wallet

In April of 2019 I’ve joined the world’s largest Blockchain and AI hackathon to build a handheld device for doing payments using blockchain technology. It became an epic event of enourmous proportions and possiblities. Unimaginable for those not joining.

For the past two years I attended two Dutch Blockchain hackathons and the hackathon of the European Union as a specialist.

The Blockchain minor

Last week, together with Jordi Jansen, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Blockchain Realists, Ronald Mulder and Lykle de Vries. These are two blockchain specialists from the first hour and leaders in the Netherlands on the subject. This resulted in a very nice talk in podcast style.

During the 50-minute interview (in Dutch), Jordi Jansen and I talk about the minor about Blockchain that we have developed for students at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, about the effort it takes to innovate in the educational sector and about the enthusiasm that blockchain education is currently unleashing.

Regulating ICO’s in the EU

DAICO’s will empower individuals that use ICO’s for crowdfunding purposes and bring an end to some of the risks accompanied by current ICO’s.

Last week I was invited to join the discussion, at the European Parliament, about the way forward with regulating ICO’s in Europe. The debate was motivated by a draft report which proposed a new framework of regulation on crowdfunding through regular crowdfunding platforms and ICO’s.
