Klaytn: The Metaverse Blockchain for All

In this session, I want to talk about how Klaytn will become Metaverse blockchain. Klaytn tries two approaches: strengthening and advertising L1’s transaction latency and providing the easy developer experience for ServiceChain (Klaytn’s L2). We first target the transaction latency. The transaction latency is the most important metric in terms of a single user. If the transaction is short enough, we can make a web2-like service even using blockchain technology. Secondly, we provide open-source metaverse packages so that any service developers easily use and modify the packages for their service. This includes auto-deployment tool, wallets, block explorers, DEXes, NFT marketplaces, Oracle connectors, bridges, etc. Service developers only concern their business logic.

The Future of Web3 Enabled Real Estate

Real estate is the largest asset class in the world, but the industry has been notoriously slow to embrace new tools and technologies. With the widespread adoption of blockchain technology, real estate has the potential to be upended and revolutionized. Balcony DAO, a Web3 investment bank, aims to democratize access to investment-grade real estate opportunities by tokenizing real-world assets in the form of NFTs. Introducing the first-of-its-kind real estate-backed NFTs (reNFTs), which represent equity ownership in physical, income-producing assets, Balcony will set a new standard for investing, entirely on-chain.

Fast Adaptive Learning of Miner Extractable Values

Miner Extractable Value (MEV) has become an important factor in blockchain design and has been used to quantify the economic security of composed decentralized-finance (DeFi) smart contracts. A miner/validator can reorder, insert or censor blockchain transactions to increase the MEV accrued to them, thus making it essential to study the maximum value that can be extracted. In this work, we formulate MEV as a black-box optimization problem and propose a highly scalable and automated solver. Our optimization problem is defined as altering a set of input user transactions to maximize MEV. In this context, the underlying solution space constitutes possible reorderings of input transactions, along with insertions of new transactions by the miner on a given set of (composed) smart contracts. To maximize the MEV in this large solution space, we devise an intelligent agent that iteratively learns the underlying opaque objective function and converges to the optimum MEV. Our proposed learning-based design is agnostic to the underlying smart contracts and can therefore generalize to various DeFi contracts and arbitrary transactions.

Future of Self-sovereign Identity and Data Sovereignty

Data is a key driver of modern economy and AI/machine learning, however, a lot of this data is sensitive and handling the sensitive data has caused unprecedented challenges for both individuals and businesses. These challenges will only get more severe as we move forward in the digital era. In this talk, I will talk about how Web3 technologies including decentralized identities, policy-compliant decentralized computation, and data sovereignty can help provide a paradigm shift to enable users and data owners to maintain better control of their data and get better benefits from their data, and break down data silos and enable data commons for public good through decentralized data science. By combining technologies including secure computing, differential privacy, federated learning, as well as blockchain technologies for data rights, we can build a platform for a responsible data economy, to enable more responsible use of data that maximizes social welfare & economic efficiency while protecting users’ data rights and enable fair distribution of value created from data.

MachineFi: Unlocking a $12 trillion Reward Economy via Web3

Machine economies are massive networks of devices owned by individuals or in groups that act as autonomous market participants by providing either data access, resources, or actuation in exchange for payment. Historically, these networks have failed to garner traction due to the infrastructure and capital requirements needed to operationalize them. In this presentation, I will share the infra and tools we are building to bring machines and data in IRL to web3 to empower MachineFi dapps!

Securely Scaling Decentralized Governance

Building governance systems for protocols to handle increasing levels of complex decision-making and security while remaining decentralized at their core is a daunting task. How do you ensure protocol upgrades are secure without gate-keeping? How should proposals be developed, accepted and passed without cumbersome bureaucracy? In this session, we'll look at how different blockchain protocols and DAOs have approached these problems and what can be learned from them.
