Second Statebox Summit - Recorded Talks


We're proud to state that the Second Statebox Summit was a success. If you're interested in learning more about category theory, the complete crash course on category theory can be found here. Also, we highly recommend watching the talks given at the Very Blockchain Meetup in Amsterdam, which includes Josh Harvey's demo of Statebox software running inside a BTC ATM and other compelling presentations.

Statebox is starting an initiative, independent from its main activities, to provide more ways to review contributions to the blockchain ecosystem in different areas in a proper peer-reviewed manner. Find out more on the journal website.
