David Schwartz at Developer Week
Payments today are hard – they’re antiquated, siloed and disconnected, and yet a fundamental component of every service, app, and platform that we use. The rise of blockchain and digital assets has the power to fundamentally improve this, but building with these nascent technologies is still challenging for the 23 million+ developers worldwide. In this talk, David Schwartz, CTO of Ripple and co-creator of the XRP Ledger, one of the largest blockchains in the world, will discuss how building with blockchain and digital assets can bring about the change today’s fragmented payments infrastructure so desperately craves.
More specifically, David will discuss new tools developers can take advantage of for the first time to address these problems head on, and make moving money instantly across any payments network a reality. This session will showcase how all developers – not just those specific to blockchain – can make their mark to change the payments game and enable a future of easy transactions between anyone, anywhere and using any currency. Welcome to the open platform for money.
