@EveningLearnings

In the same evening, Global Coin Research and Dystopia Labs co-hosted an event with the Tor Project Founder Roger Dingledine. Roger gave a talk about the infrastructure of Tor and the approach and challenges to building private and scalable solutions. We believe these kind of learnings are valuable for the blockchain community, as many engineers and builders are currently facing the technical challenges of building scalable private solutions.

We had an amazing turnout of professors, students, blockchain builders and cryptographers such as those from Orchid Labs.
