Blockchain Hackers VIII: overview of conversation on cutting edge DeFi security

Last week the Hacken team organized our traditional Blockchain Hackers meetup bringing together DeFi security enthusiasts in Barcelona. We had top speakers from Ava Labs,, Hacken, and Status. Also, it was a great pleasure for our team and all participants to speak with CoinGecko co-founder Bobby Ong.

If you have any feedback and suggestions after viewing these presentations, feel free to communicate them on our Discord. Your ideas may change the DeFi cybersecurity landscape.

At the end of the meetup, the guests enjoyed listening to the fireside chat with Hacken CEO Dyma Budorin and co-founder and COO of CoinGecko Bobby Ong. Bobby and Dyma shared valuable information regarding transparency trends in Web 3.0.

Transparency will become one of the hottest Web 3.0 topics in the near future due to the modern cyberwar and its implications for crypto holders. Try to do some research on this topic and share your findings with our team and community.

Great thanks to all speakers and visitors of our event. Our team is looking forward to seeing you at Blockchain Hackers IX.
