Status sponsors TADHack Global

StatusWe’re proud to announce Status sponsors TADHack Global 2018.

Status was co-founded by Carl Bennetts and Jarrad Hope in 2015 to help make the world a more open and equitable place by delivering the power of Web3 (decentralized web) to anyone with an Internet connection. Status is an open source, Ethereum-based app that gives you the power to chat, transact, and access a revolutionary world of ÐApps.

In January of this year Status announced their backing of the open source project Matrix, a close friend of TADHack and TADSummit. Thanks to the Status team for helping Matrix / Riot grow to fulfill its destiny on the decentralized web 🙂  David Dias from Protocol Labs is a close friend of TADHack and TADSummit, helping with TADHack Lisbon since 2015, and presenting on the decentralized web and its impact at TADSummit. Its great to see the importance of ÐApps / Decentralized Web gaining more and more attention.

statusYou’ll read later about a ÐApp called Aragon. One of the co-founders of Aragon is Luis Iván Cuende, he was one of the first ever TADHack Global winners, you can see his pitch video from TADHack Global 2014 here. Its a small world 🙂

TADHack brings its broad audience of SIs, enterprises, CIOs, web developers, entrepreneurs, telecom geeks, students and general developers to the exciting world of ÐApps through Status. At TADHack Global you’ll be able to solve problems that matter to you through mashing up Ethereum / Status and programmable telecoms.
