Ecosystem Panel @ Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator: Plug in to the World of Stellar Assets

On May 4th at 10 AM PT, the Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator is hosting a panel discussion moderated by Justin Rice, VP of Ecosystem at the Stellar Development Foundation, and joined by a panel of key ecosystem players (including COINQVEST) as they explore assets on Stellar.

Stellar is a platform that connects the world's financial infrastructure by making it easy for regulated financial institutions to issue assets that represent real-world currencies. But you don't have to be a regulated financial institution to build on Stellar! You can build an app right now — no matter who you are — that takes advantage of those assets to settle real-world payments for real-world users, no permission required.
