Event description
Stable Coins are often described as the holy grail of crypto. But why does the world need them, how do they work and where can they be used?

About this Event

More than 5700 cryptocurrencies have been created on public blockchain infrastructure to date, the vast majority of which are fundamentally unfit for use cases requiring relative price stability, notably payments. "Stable coins" address this issue with varying degrees of success and structurally different means of creating this stability.

This event will thouroughly contextualize the emergence of stable coins, examine the most important cryptoeconomic stable coin design patterns, and investigate relevant topics such as potential geopolitical implications.

The dial-in link will be sent to all registered participants.

Token Engineering Switzerland is the Swiss chapter of the global Token Engineering movement. Our mission is to cultivate an awareness of the emerging professional discipline of Token Engineering in Switzerland and to connect academics, practitioners, and investors during local events. If you want to be involved in future events as an orga team member, sponsor or collaboration partner, please get in touch!

The first Token Engineering Switzerland event in February 2020 introduced Token Engineering as the emerging professional discipline around designing cryptoeconomic systems. The second event in June 2020 explored Token Bonding Curve design patterns and real-world applications.
