Augur Selected to Participate in Singularity University and CNBC's XCS Challenge

By Tony Sakich

Augur is taking over New York City with two awesome events happening on the first days of June.
We are thrilled to announce that Augur has been selected to participate in the XCS Challenge, part of the Exponential Finance 2015 Conference presented by Singularity University and CNBC. The XCS Challenge gives Finance related startups the opportunity to present in front of some of the most important individuals in Finance and Technology.
For those who aren’t aware, Singularity University is an organization founded by Dr. Ray Kurzweil and Dr. Peter H. Diamandis that focuses on cultivating the most innovative technologies that have potential to improve the future for humanity. Both of these great minds will be the keynote speakers of this event, this illustrates the level of influential thinkers and businesspeople who will be in attendance. Dr. Kurzweil is someone who has influenced me greatly on a personal level and in 2013 was named Director of Engineering at Google. The possibility (which seems to be very high) of Dr. Kurzweil seeing Augur, a project I play a small role in, excites me in a way most wouldn't believe. To say that our acceptance into the XCS Challenge is an honor would definitely be an understatement. For more information on this event and some great links, go to the bottom of this blog post.
Our trip to New York City doesn't end there. On June 1st, the day before Exponential Finance, Augur will be presenting at the NYC Ethereum Meetup. This event will be happening in Times Square and is open to anyone who RSVPs on the event's Meetup page that you can find here. Full details for this and the conference will be found at the end of this blog post.
This Meetup event is aimed to give developers, investors, press and any interested individuals the ability to speak with the Augur team. Unlike Exponential Finance, the Ethereum Meetup is free to attend and will provide a less formal environment for questions and conversations from the general public.
There will be more news and announcements regarding both the Exponential Finance conference and the Ethereum meetup in the days to come. Full details are found at the end of this blog post.
