Blockchain Protocol Battle: How They're Enabling App Development & Adoption

  • K&L Gates LLP 4 Embarcadero Center, Floor 12 San Francisco, CA 94111 United States (map)

While there are thousands of protocols, few have significant traction in terms of number of applications built on top and users. What are the characteristics that make it easier for developers to build applications on top of a protocol? In this session, we’ll hear from the developers at these protocols talk about what they’ve found through interacting with their communities and what the protocols have built to enable rapid application development and user adoption.
