Zug, Switzerland – June 17, 2022 Bitcoin Association for BSV has represented Bitcoin SV at WeAreDevelopers World Congress in Berlin. With more than 8000 attendees over two days the WeAreDevelopers World Congress is the largest developer event worldwide.
Bitcoin SV was represented in two separate talks on the 14th of June. The presentation ‘20 Million Txs Per Day: Writing Data to the World Largest PoW Blockchain’ was held by Kurt Wuckert Jr., Chief Bitcoin Historian, CoinGeek, Jad Wahab, Director of Engineering at Bitcoin Association and Connor Murray, Founder of Britevue and Blockchain SV Academy Course Content Creator.
Darren Kellenschwiler, Co-Founder & CTO of Elas, and Mihael Šinkec, Software Engineer at sCrypt, held the second presentation ‘Bitcoin is a Turing Complete System On Which You Can Build Smart Contracts and Issue Tokens’. Both times the pews were completely filled with a total of about 160 congress participants. The audience showed great interest in the talks, but the tight schedule of the event only allowed a limited number of questions.
Furthermore, Bitcoin SV was represented in three workshops on the 15th of June. For the workshop ‘Building applications on Bitcoin SV’ Darren Kellenschwiler and Connor Murray gave the workshop participants an introduction to the functionalities of BSV. The workshop showcased how to build applications with the publicly available SDKs by HandCash and Money Button.
The second workshop by sCrypt’s Mihael Šinkec focussed on the smart contract capabilities of Bitcoin SV. During the workshop, Šinkec showed participants how they can build a simple tic-tac-toe game via sCrypt’s educational tool learn.scrypt.io. The game allowed players to win a staked amount of BSV.
The third workshop ‘The Future of Transaction processing and blockchain infrastructure as a service’ was held by TAAL’s Frank Dickob, Simon Orbish and Liam Missim. The workshop showcased a note application by TAAL. Participants could write a note via BSV’s blockchain which was displayed on-screen through an application by TAAL.
Martin Coxall, Marketing Director at Bitcoin Association for BSV commented:
‘The WeAreDevelopers World Congress allowed us to display the scalability and utility of Bitcoin SV. Its smart contract capability, microtransactions and massive data throughput are unique among Proof-of-Work blockchains. We successfully showcased and promoted to congress visitors how these features allow developers to build applications that can minimise certain costs for businesses or even to create entirely new revenue streams and business models.’
Jad Wahab, Director of Engineering at Bitcoin Association for BSW drew the following conclusion about the event:
‘The WeAreDevelopers World Congress is the world’s largest developer event. It was great to showcase both theoretically and practically how Bitcoin SV is ready for global adoption. We have worked in the past years towards the goal of making BSV scalable, sustainable and reliable. With LiteClient Toolbox and our Solidity Transpiler, we are making it easily accessible now for developers and businesses.’
