Intro to Web3--From Zero to Token Launch Photo

​This hybrid hands-on workshop will cover the basics of Web3 - no previous background knowledge required. Bring your laptop and learn how to get a wallet and self-custody your digital assets. You will also learn how to create your own token and your own decentralized autonomous organization.

This two-session workshop is open to anyone with a current HUID. Space is limited. Advance registration is highly recommended. Each session will end between 8:30-9pm. Pizza and refreshments will be served for those joining us in person in Wexner 434AB. Others should register to join us remotely via zoom.

Instructor: Steve Derezinski, who has taught Blockchain Ventures at MIT Media Lab, Babson and MIT Bitcoin club, and has been involved in Blockchains since 2016. The workshop is based on the semester-long classes he taught. He has an S.B. in mechanical engineering from MIT and an MBA from Sloan.

Session 1 (Oct. 23): Overview of Web3, blockchain and crypto. Get a wallet and explore the Web3 world.

Session 2 (Oct. 24): Create a DAO (online business), mint your own token, offer it for sale and begin trading it live.

This workshop does not constitute and will not offer investment or legal advice. The Digital Assets Policy Project is not encouraging anyone to invest in crypto-assets, which are largely unregulated, volatile in price, and pose a high risk of loss. This workshop is offered for the purpose of helping students understand how the technology works, not to promote its use for investment or any other purpose.
