Speaking at SoftUnit Conference about Blockchain

SoftUnit Conference, Bulgaria is one of the largest tech conferences in Bulgaria. The event will be hosted on the 28 and 29 September at Paradise Center, Sofia. This year, I was invited to the conference as a Blockchain speaker.

The event is huge. There are more than 2000 attendees expected to come to this event. Also, the speakers front-line looks pretty well. Not because I am there, but because there are names which are some of the most well-known in the tech industry in Bulgaria.

And what am I speaking about? My talk is called “From Mining to Proof of Stake”. This talk will be about the problems Mining imposes on the Blockchain industry and the world we live in. Unfortunately, it is the most widely spread consensus algorithm in cryptocurrencies nowadays. So what are the alternatives? Proof of Stake? What’s that? How does it work? Why is it not massively adopted yet?

If you want to find out and you want to have a great time at an awesome event, come at the 28 September to Paradise Center, Sofia and I’ll meet you there!

Speaking at TEDxPlovdiv

Monterey, California hosts the great conference called TED every year. Some of the greatest speakers from all over the world gather and share “Ideas worth spreading”. But independent TED events are being organised all over the world with the abbreviation of TEDx.

Plovdiv, one of the greatest cities in Bulgaria, is hosting a TEDx event for the first time in its history. I cannot describe how excited I am to be part of some great speakers on this event.

On April 23, I will share my philosophy about why blaming others stops your growth. It is a lesson I have learned while playing one of the most popular games nowadays (It was popular when I was playing it too) – League of Legends.

I am looking forward to attending this great event with great enthusiasm and I can’t wait to meet all the great people there!

EDIT: This was a great event and I enjoyed meeting cool people with amazing stories. My talk also came out in YouTube recently and you can watch it here:

Announcing the repository, where I will keep all my talks

Lately, I have been making some talks and I have wondered where to store them in order for them to be available to the public. I have found a platform, called Speaker Deck, where I will be sharing all my talks from now on since it makes it easy for everyone to view them online.

The platform doesn’t support adding anything else except the slides, though, so I will share whatever materials a presentation might have in my Github Repository, where it will be available for downloading anytime.

Without any further ado – My Speaker Deck Account
