PRO SESSION (API): Toward an Economics-Fueled API Frontier


Jeff Garzik
Bloq, CEO & Cofounder

Jeff has long been at the center of developing and commercializing open source software related to Bitcoin and blockchain technology. Before co-founding Bloq to develop blockchain solutions for a multi-chain world, he spent five years as a Bitcoin core developer and ten years at Red Hat. His work with the Linux kernel is now found in every Android phone and data center running Linux today. Jeff serves on the advisory boards of BitPay, BitFury, Netki and WayPaver Labs. Among the earliest contributors to Bitcoin, the 15,678 BTC Jeff gave away in developer bounties is today worth over $180 million.


As digital resources -- compute, storage, bandwidth, etc. -- increasingly become tokenized and trade-able on tomorrow’s blockchain networks, managing these tokenized resources will become vitally important. This talk outlines this future, characterized by greater composability of applications and the financialization of digital resources.
