Nestor Dubnevych, Legal Nodes
As soon as Web3 team plans to attract investments from a venture fund, sign agreements with contractors, or list a token on an exchange, it will likely start to receive questions on when and how a blockchain protocol has been incorporated. This is because incorporation is part of a “legal wrapper” for a blockchain protocol and without this legal wrapper, interaction between the on-chain protocol and the outside world can become complicated. In addition to this, a protocol without a legal wrapper poses some real risks to the team and protocol stakeholders. To discuss such legal challenges - we would like to suggest the following agenda: 1) on-chain and off-chain parts of Web3 products and their legal status; 2) DAO legal wrapper structuring; 3) token cap table preparation; 4) legal documents for fundraising in Web3 industry.

Continued development on the XRPL brings an ever changing dynamic of security concerns to the forefront. Billions of dollars in losses result from security breaches, scams, market manipulation, and illicit activity. This panel discussion will bring together security experts from Ripple and AnChain.AI to discuss trends in fraud, hacks, and exploits, and surface the question of who is responsible for implementing security measures within different facets of the XRPL ecosystem. Panelists will shed light on security concerns and address possible preventative measures and remediations in an effort to forge a path, as a community, to ensure the services, frameworks, and education resources are properly made available to the XRPL ecosystem for a safer XRPL ecosystem.
Adam Kagy, xrp.cafe
An exploration of the fusion of A.I. and NFTs on the XRP Ledger, this speech by Adam Kagy, CEO of xrp.cafe, will explore the topic of A.I. generative art and what this means for the future of content creators, NFT markets, developers, and the XRP community. Is A.I. a replacement for developers and content creators? Or could it be a tool - a way to support NFT marketplaces and enhance the user experience? Could it also be a means to support content creators in connecting with their audience and cultivating both value and their individual vision? This presentation will focus on the practical use of A.I at xrp.cafe to create a superior user experience, empower and inform content creators, and build a stronger, more engaged community. It will also discuss the responsibility that developers in web3 have in considering and addressing the ethical concerns of A.I. and NFTS.

David Simmons, Dhali
Robbie Daniels, Dhali
Dhali is a Web 3.0 marketplace that revolutionises the way APIs are accessed, deployed, and monetised. It offers a seamless platform where developers can deploy their APIs, while users can connect their wallets to access the desired services. One of the key advantages of Dhali is its utilisation of efficient XRPL payment channels. These payment channels enable cost-effective off-ledger transactions, dramatically enhancing the overall efficiency of the Dhali platform to the benefit of all Dhali users. In addition, APIs on Dhali are tokenised using non-fungible tokens (NFTs). When an API is accessed and utilised, the owner of the corresponding NFT receives the earnings generated from its usage. By combining efficient off-ledger payment channels and NFT-based tokenisation, Dhali offers a secure, efficient, and transparent ecosystem for API deployment and monetisation.
Julian Kanjere, Mandla Money
Central banks and technology providers across the world are actively exploring the use of retail central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) for payments by individuals and households. One of the raging debates is how to enable offline payments in order to advance financial inclusion. In this talk, I go behind the scenes and discuss the approach that we have taken at Mandla Money to build an offline, custodial text-message based retail CBDC and stablecoin wallet. I highlight how to integrate an XRPL-issued asset, XRP/USDC reserve management through the XRPL decentralised exchange (DEX), XRP/fiat reserve management through a centralised exchange (CEX), security features of the wallet, and carrying out administrative XRPL actions through a web dashboard that leverages xrpl-js. I conclude the presentation with a demo of the aforementioned activities and features.

CBDC Interoperability, combining two ledgers (Hyperledger Besu & XRPL) over EVM sidechain. CBDC implementations are growing and maturing. In Brazil, we have the definition of Hyperledger Besu as a primary ledger for local CBDC (Real Digital), which is EVM-compatible. Our proposal target to show how to build an interoperability between both ledgers, creating a use case and providing usability for XRP at the endpoints of settlement.
Clay Graham, Centigrade
The carbon credit SDK is an open source SDK built on top of the XRPL. While built specifically to meet the tokenization needs for Carbon Markets, It provides an API and sample code demonstrating how to mint Semi Fungible Tokens for any use case. This API and examples apply to both Real World assets that need an additional level of tracking and opens these assets to DeFi dApps by tokenizing them as easily tradable Fungible Tokens instead of NFTs.
The SDK API mints tokens and stores additional metadata in the trustline. This metadata both describes the token and allows individual token IDs to be assigned upon token burning, providing lifecycle tracking for individual tokens normally only available from NFTs. Since this is accomplished without NFTs we maintain the lower reserve costs and transactional flexibility of Fungible Tokens.
In addition to showcasing SFT functionality, the Carbon Markets SDK follows the Interwork Alliance Tokenization Framework. I will demonstrate how the SDK supports this framework and can be used to generate NFTs which represent Ecological Project information, assert on chain claims supporting the validity of the carbon credits, and track carbon credit tokens through their entire lifecycle.

Frontrunning, the act of exploiting transaction information to gain an unfair advantage in trading, is a pervasive issue in Automated Market Maker exchanges. Ethereum is plagued by frontrunning. Frontrunners capitalize on price movements by observing pending transactions and executing trades before them. This behaviour undermines the trust in decentralized platforms and hinders the adoption of DeFi. In this talk, we will explore how the new Automated Market Maker functionality proposed in the XLS-30d extension improves the resilience of XRP Ledger against frontrunning attacks. A key element of frontrunning is manipulating transaction execution order. XRPLs Canonical Order ensures that frontrunners cannot control transaction execution order. Moreover, the new AMM integrates with the existing Order Book exchange, making frontrunning more challenging.
