Last year’s CNBC & Singularity University’s Exponential Finance Conference were a major success for Augur as we were named a “Breakthrough Finalist” in their XCS Challenge. The response to Augur was positive by the extremely influential attendees and the blockchain-centric press. We are very happy to let everyone know that Augur has been invited back to Exponential Finance 2016 and will be participating in the event’s “innovation lab” in June.
One of the changes we’ve already noticed from last year’s event is with only a few of the many projects announced so far to exhibit, blockchain technology will feature an increased representation. Additionally, Brian Forde, former Technology Advisor to Barack Obama and current Director of Digital Currency at MIT Media Lab as well as Abra CEO William Barhydt will be presenting.
Date: June 7th & 8th
Location: Hotel Conrad in New York City’s Battery Park

The event is titled “Augur 101: When Ethereum Meets Prediction Markets” and is absolutely free to anyone who wishes to attend.
