The event, which will take place during Consensus Singapore, will bring together Virgil Griffith, who’s in charge of special projects at the Ethereum Foundation, and Da Hongfei, the founder of NEO, to discuss everything from technology development to communities.
The description of the event reads as follows, “Ethereum meets NEO, one of the most popular smart contract platforms in China. Apt comparison or misleading advertising? Representatives from two crypto communities debate whether they’re going after the same market after all.”
Coindesk’s head of research, Nolan Bauerle, will be moderating the discussion, which will hopefully feature some heated topics regarding the future directions of both blockchains. We should ultimately learn more about how both projects are considering each other in terms of the competitive landscape.
The event will take place on September 19 between 3:00 PM-3:20 PM (GMT+8). While there is no indication that there will be a live video stream, the details will likely be posted shortly after its conclusion on the NEO Reddit page.
