Harvard University Students collaborate with Top 20 cryptocurrency Tezos

Cambridge, Mass., October 3rd, 2018 — Harvard University student organization “Harvard Undergraduate Blockchain Group” otherwise known as HUBG has announced collaboration with Top 20 blockchain, Tezos.

HUBG and CryptoLiveLeak, Cryptocurrency News & Media Organizer, are working together to host the Tezos Boston Meetup #3 featuring the Co-Founder of Tezos, Kathleen Breitman, on Sunday October 7th, 2018 from 12:00PM – 3:00PM. Tezos Boston Meetup has been organized by Ken Garofalo from CryptoLiveLeak for the past 3 Months and the group aims to help bring awareness to the next gen Smart Contracts Platform which features Formal Verification, On-Chain Governance, and a Self Amending Ledger. The partnership between HUBG and Tezos is a natural fit says Ken Garofalo, who will be moderating Sunday’s event and fireside chat with Kathleen Breitman.

“Tezos is a true Decentralized Commonwealth, where anyone with stake can benefit from the protocols dividend paying verification process called Baking. In addition to Baking (Staking) rewards, Tezos offers one of the most robust smart contract platforms available in the market. Features such as formal verification and programming languages Liquidity and Michelson give Tezos a distinct advantage for programmers coding smart contracts for DAPPS or other use case scenarios. If Ethereum was Blockchain 2.0, then Tezos is Blockchain 3.0.

We are extremely excited to have this opportunity to host the meetup at Harvard University in collaboration with HUBG, we hope to form mutually beneficial relationships between the bright students of Harvard University and the need for developers on the Tezos protocol”

– Ken Garofalo

HUBG was started in the Fall of 2017 after students saw the lack of available resources and opportunities related to blockchain on Harvard’s campus. Officially launching in 2018, HUBG has attracted over 300 students’ interest, and has been developing ever since. Currently, the organization operates through three committees:

  • Investment Committee
  • Technology Committee

  • Development and Marketing Committee

The featured speaker for the event is Kathleen Brietman who is a pioneer for women in blockchain as well as a cryptocurrency celebrity, being featured in this recent Wired Magazine article. She will be participating in a fireside chat in the Harvard Hall 104 lecture hall accompanied by Shaun Belcher of Tezos Commons Foundation and moderated by Ken Garofalo of CryptoLiveLeak. Kathleen will touch on many topics including audience questions and also her shift to the video game industry as mention in this recent Fortune article.
