This question is part of the New York Chapter Diversity in Blockchain Launch Event on May 7, 2019. We hope that our attendees can successfully interact with an Ethereum application after our evening of programming.
Diversity in Blockchain Inc. (DiB) is a nonprofit organization committed to creating equal, open and inclusive opportunities in the blockchain industry. Our mission is to empower everyone from all walks of life to engage with blockchain technology in order to ensure equal participation and distribution. True innovation includes everyone. Through education, discussion, and engagement we can build a support network as revolutionary as the blockchain itself.
In my view, there are 5 main programming ideas and /or topics that need to be included to help create more equal, open and inclusive opportunities in the blockchain industry.
1.How to use cryptocurrencies to buy and sell items in person, and also how to participate in token sales.
2.How to create fungible assets. I think a workshop should be carried out to teach how to create ERC-20 tokens including how to create smart contracts for an ICO/IEO. Also how to create assets in Ravencoin (open source protocol specific for asset creation that have the option to send dividends to token holders, it is currently being implemented). Also Bytom protocol should be included which is focused specifically on asset creation. These 3 protocols are the main ones and more versatile in asset creation to my knowledge. This way, people from all walks of life who learn how to create their own assets will be able to use their imagination to create assets with interesting purposes and functionalities. Also Set protocol should be included which somehow allows for fractional ownership through the tokenization of a group of assets. Interesting concept. In terms of programming, it would great to learn how to create the contracts that allow the tokenization in general.
3.How to use (and create a basic crypto wallet if possible if we talk about programming ideas )a Web3 wallets (e.g. like Metamask, Toshi, Mainframe OS,etc) to:
-open a CPD through MakerDao and teach how people leverage ether volatility to take profits as a direct result of ether appreciation while paying back their collateral without incurring in liquidation of their collateral and without losing their ether position. How to use (to teach how to create those smart contracts would be nice too) Compound and Dharma (which doesn't require Web3 wallet) to gain interest.
-how to participate in buying and selling virtual products like LAND, Cryptovoxels, and crypto collectibles in different markets (like for example OpenSea).
-how to use DEXes platforms, how use Augur to create prediction markets and how to participate in Bounty network of course.
I think it is important to have a diverse panel of speakers / presenters / founders etc. to be presenting at these types of events.
I think the people that are invited to these events should also use the events as a platform to talk about their journey in blockchain to make it easier for everyone to understand that everyone's story is unique in the blockchain space.
I would be interested in a way of using blockchain as tool for proof of identity. Like not depending on passports issued by your centralized government, but being able to proof your ID just using a public ledger as bitcoin or ethereum.
Energy management - there will be no need for large buyers and distributors.
Historically, this industry has been highly centralized. To gain access to energy, it must be purchased from intermediaries who have direct links with major manufacturing companies. And the use of blockchain will allow you to efficiently create, buy, and sell energy, say, to your neighbors.
A track on how to create and build your own ERC-721 or similar ERC from scratch to empower artists to fully create and own their own tokens
Would like to see how simple can things get, how simple can the whole blockchain idea be broken down to, bringing things to ELI5 level where no one should go "i don't get it". Talk about the potential of how easy things can become if certain steps are taken.
(Blockchain/Digital public ledger) of transactions that is decentralized – unchecked by governments – and yet secure due to a distributed verification network of miners, who approve transactions using numerous high-performing machines.
