Madrid was the starry backdrop for this year's Stellar Meridian Conference. For its 5th edition, Meridian chose the compelling theme ’Unlocking Human Potential.’ It was a vibrant confluence of developers, founders, policymakers, and finance mavens, all focused on revolutionizing access and empowerment through blockchain technology. BPV actively engaged in the conversations that matter, focusing on the key aspects of blockchain technology that can transform financial institutions. Our work in Stellar protocol and regulatory compliance places us in a unique position to drive the sector forward.A Passion for Stellar

It felt like a family reunion when we bumped into old friends like Jed McCaleb, Stellar's founder, as well as Justing Rice and Tomer Weller. The sense of community was palpable, a testament to the inclusive and innovative spirit that the Stellar ecosystem embodies.

Our very own Anthony Barker illuminated the stage as a panelist discussing Blockchain Oracles. Christian Larsen also hit the stage to speak about Oracles and their role in enabling real options trading. They both delved into the nuances of BPV's upcoming LightEcho Oracle and its role in Soroban, Stellar's imminent smart contract system. Oracles are pivotal in linking smart contracts with real-world data, and LightEcho aims to be a cornerstone in this integration.
The discussion on Soroban extended beyond just Oracles. We engaged in a riveting debate about its revolutionary storage mechanism with Garand Tyson. Soroban's storage solutions promise to be a game-changer, bringing scalability and efficiency to a new level, something we at BPV find particularly exciting.The Mastermind Behind the Curtain
A shoutout is due for Anke Liu, the Community & Events Manager who orchestrated this memorable gathering. The event was a logistical masterpiece, and much of that credit goes to her meticulous planning and execution.
As the curtains closed on Meridian 2023, our team couldn't help but feel exhilarated about the future of the Stellar Ecosystem. The conference not only validated the immense potential of blockchain technology but also gave us a glimpse into how Stellar intends to unlock this potential in the most human way possible—by empowering individuals and institutions alike.
Stay tuned, because if Meridian 2023 was any indication, the future is not just bright; it's Stellar.
