Free/libre payment system

Presented by: Sebastian Marchano

I'm core developer of GNU Taler, working mainly on the Wallet. Living in Argentina, father of two, like to play chess and drink mate.


If we look to email as an example, free software made a revolution that is still strong today. Thanks to the protocol definition, the software and the communities around it are able to setup, run and help each other. GNU Taler is a protocol and software that promotes the same revolution in payment methods, where people can participate freely to generate an essential infrastructure for today's society. In this talk we are going to introduce how it works, which are the main components, we will navigate a demonstration and answer why it is different in comparison with other digital payment systems. We will end the session with a roadmap and a guide to join in and contribute.
