Zonafide & Moneo
Wednesday 31st May 6pm – 9:30pm @ Shoreditch Platform
The next Coinscrum touches on two topics that will remain hot in the blockchain industry for some time to come. Identity (to make the whole thing work) and Talent (to make the whole thing work).
Zonafide’s mission is to enable people to work together to prevent fraud. It is the first non-cryptocurrency application of the blockchain intended for the general public on Android. It enables people to declare Activities that require other’s to have Acknowledged as legitimate before a counterparty acts on them. It can be applied to many scenarios, with mutual or authoritative trust requirements, having a goal to be completely ubiquitous in its use. Like WhatsApp but the GrownApp for Grown up things.
Founder & CEO, Paul Worrall will discuss: How smart contracts on the blockchain are being used by Zonafide® to help people work together to prevent fraud. Maybe it is an instruction to your Solicitor to make a house payment, confirmation of a change of details with your bank or authority for workmen to access premises. Smart contracts are helping people prove activities are genuine and making it much harder for fraudsters when it isn’t. The audience will be encouraged to install the DApp on their mobile phones, the Founders will be offering to provide test Eth in person to use the DApp.
Instruction to all attendees to make this event interactive:
To use the Zonafide DApp you will need some test ETH. If you download the DApp from Android, please search Zonafide on Google Play and create a new Key, you will find you can share your Address with the Zonafide team and they will credit it with some test ETH. Apple users can do the same but you need to provide your email address to get an invite to you from Apple to access the DApp over their TestFlight service.
To communicate with the Zonafide team, please use Gitter via the ‘Open Chat’ on their website www.zonafide.net or email them at [masked].
