The Presentation:
Title: - “The Linkedin for crypto”

How can network theory can be used to introduce a Linkedin-like structure on top of streams of data from Twitter, podcasts, events or Reddit. We will talk about early data-driven attempts to make sense of the crypto ecosystem and its social dynamics. We will also give examples of applications that have already been built on top of this data set by independent developers.

This project started from a simple experiment of using graph theory to find out who are the most influential accounts on Crypto Twitter. The results initially published on soon went viral.

The Panel
