Following many years of successful SourceFuse’s Jax Tech events, Jax Tech kicked off its 2022 calendar of events on 14 April at MOSH, Jacksonville, FL. Sponsored and organized by SourceFuse, this event took a deep dive into the world of web3 including cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and DAOs, and heard from experts in this space doing real-world business on top of these technologies.

In the modern tech-enabled economy, many finance enterprises face the possibility of cut-throat competition. SourceFuse understands these industry technological challenges, and has provided several bespoke cloud-native fintech solutions and services for them to gain a more credible competitive advantage.

Featured Speakers

Jeff Harris, Blockchain Entrepreneur, Xero Labs, shared learnings and insights from multiple ventures in the web3 arena. Jeff shared the ins and outs of starting this strange new type of entity, answering questions such as what is a DAO, how do you form one, how do you craft a smart contract, and what are some of the gotchas to look out for? He then gave a peek under the hood at Bitcoin mining, the technology behind the miner machines, power consumption, tracking and analytics, and what it looks like to launch a full scale mining operation.

Ben Wasson, Innovation Evangelist, SS&C Advent, shared insights about cryptocurrency trading and what the future might hold. He defined the differences between a traditional trade and the life of a crypto trade and what technology barriers must be crossed to allow institutional investors to fully enter the crypto market. Ben also highlighted the implications and potential to the crypto markets when institutional whales truly enter the game.

Alla Koretsky, Founder/CEO, Layer Technologies, presented what it means to have your NFTs settle on Bitcoin instead of Ethereum, and to have lower (or zero) gas fees, or to be one of the Stacks.co first accelerator cohorts. Beyond OpenSea, there is more to NFTs than the one major marketplace. She answered questions, such as what it would take to mint your own NFTs or build your own marketplace, and how to launch a community in the Metaverse.
