BlockSplit Conference

International Conference for Blockchain Business and Development



April 25th, 2019

10:00am – 6:00pm UTC
Workshop 1: Blockchain business models

This workshop is meant to help entrepreneurs and business people alike to either validate their value proposition or find new ones, leveraging the blockchain technology. If you have a business idea, or you want to explore how the blockchain could help your current customers, in this workshop you will get the tools to find the right product-market fit. It’s a learn-by-doing experience, where we will combine theory with a hands-on approach in whatever business problems you might have.

10:00am – 6:00pm UTC
Workshop 2: Building a Bank: Lending pools 101

Focused on very a hot topic – decentralized finance, this workshop will get you familiar with the next big application of blockchain in the financial industry – loans. It will start with an introduction to the decentralized lending ecosystem and liquidity pools and then continue with learning how to set up smart contracts and client environment on Ethereum. You will create lending pool smart contracts, create and test your lending pool and deploy it on the testnet.

10:00am – 6:00pm UTC
Workshop 3: Building a DAO: zero to hero

One of the most promising applications of blockchain is transforming shareholder agreements (SHA) into self-executable code, aka DAO. SHA is the foundation of every company, and its form and execution are currently bound by laws and bureaucracy. This workshop will guide you through the key concepts and approaches in forming a company on a blockchain. It starts with an introduction to Ethereum blockchain and the concept of setting up a company. You will learn the basics of smart contracts and solidity, set up the environment, define DAO smart contract features (voting, fund allocation, DAO owned smart contracts), write the contract, test the contract and deploy it on the testnet.

10:00am – 6:00am UTC
Workshop 4: Making arbitrable smart contracts

You will learn how to make contracts which can create disputes to be resolved by an arbitrator. Traditional social contracts have a big advantage over smart contracts – they can manage complex transactions in a simple way by outsourcing the nuances to courts. Smart contracts currently don’t have that luxury and thus are limited to managing simple transactions. Solution to this is an arbitrable smart contract. In this workshop, you will be designing the incentives and making the contract. You’ll be introduced to ERC792 Arbitrator and Arbitrable contracts. You will develop a simple escrow contract and connect it to an arbitrator. Also, you’ll pick your own use-case and develop an arbitrable contract of your choosing.

10:00am – 6:00pm UTC
Workshops 5&6

Fluence strives to make DApps development as painless and straightforward as possible. At the workshop, we will explore the toolset Fluence offers by creating a simple yet elegant gaming DApp. This workshop covers: – building and deploying a DApp backend into a decentralized network; – set up a database and integrate it with the application; – creating a DApp frontend integration with the Fluence js client; – toying around with the database requests and other capabilities Fluence provides; – some theory on how we can make decentralized networks that are fast, efficient, and secure.

After the workshop, you’ll have a broader understanding of how decentralized networks could be utilized for data storage and processing and what kinds of applications could be build using decentralized stack only.

8:00pm – 2:00am UTC

Split is the home to one of the most imposing Roman ruins - the Emperor Diocletian’s palace. It was built in the fourth century and these ruins are some of the most valuable surviving buildings of the Roman era in the world and a must-see monument. You can find a perfect balance of old and new and you can simply feel the buzz during the day - the city is flourishing, especially over the course of the spring.
