The summit marks the first ever gathering of DigiByte’s great minds to present and discuss their projects. Even though the projects serve various purposes and have multiple applications, they are all connected by the same vision of technology potential, and how it can be used to design the future of our society.
Decentralisation, at its very core, is about empowering individuals and reshaping society; it is about offering solutions to protect people and businesses against digital fraud using a network where everyone could fairly contribute to, so it remains distributed and decentralized, without the need for any trusted third party, and building a digital economy that serves users’ purposes and facilitates transactions worldwide with a high level of security. These new platforms are developed by users just like everyone else, who have the technology expertise to create a new system.
More than that, the summit is also a chance for the DigiByte community to engage in open dialogue to strengthen the bonds that bring them together.
Stefania Barbaglio, official PR for DigiByte and organiser of the summit, commented: “It is very inspiring to see these great minds coming together and sharing their plans and projects with us. Jared started DigiByte with the mission to fix most of the cyber security vulnerabilities the internet is facing today by using blockchain technology. DigiByte but it is now a social project that has the potential to change society and its economy. It has grown stronger over the last few years and while many other blockchain and cryptocurrencies tried to ride the hype, DGB were working hard paving the way for more innovative ventures to arise. As Jared always says, DigiByte is a family who share the same values, positive energy and enthusiasm in developing projects that can change the world for the better.
What we are seeing at the summit is all about the future of society and economy, powered by blockchain technology and decentralisation.”
